Exploring the “Development is a Journey Conversation Roadmap”

Monday, 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm $75

Are you interested in learning more about early identification and intervention to promote a child’s optimal development? Join Brazelton Touchpoints Center for an upcoming workshop to explore the “Development is a Journey Conversation Roadmap” framework. Registration is available online.

More Information

The Brazelton Touchpoints Center has developed a new tool to help family-facing providers have collaborative and productive conversations with families about developmental screening results. The Development is a Journey Conversation Roadmap facilitates these conversations with seven simple steps to enhance the provider-parent partnership and engage parents and other caregivers in planning for their child’s developmental needs.

This 3-hour, interactive workshop introduces participants to the Roadmap and its focus on honoring families’ knowledge of their child. Participants will explore why providers and families sometimes have differences of opinion about children and screenings. Participants will practice strengths-based ways to invite all perspectives into the conversation and move ahead with equitable shared decision-making.

In this workshop, participants will:

  • Explore the seven steps in the Roadmap tool
  • Learn strategies to engage parents and families in the developmental screening process
  • Practice having conversations about developmental screening results that honor families’ perspectives, cultures, and values
  • Learn strategies to elicit parents’ observations of their children’s strengths, as well as their concerns about their children’s behavior and development
  • Practice sharing their own observations of children’s behavior with parents
  • Practice next steps when a developmental screener yields reason for concern
