Educators and practitioners working in schools and Early Intervention often desire to improve or increase collaborative practice. However, they frequently run into roadblocks that prevent opportunities for working closely together to increase outcomes for the children they serve. This workshop will provide participants with a broader understanding of specific strategies for interprofessional collaborative practice and the opportunity to self-reflect and develop new approaches that will lead to success with their own caseloads and in their unique work environments.
