TRAINING MODULE - COMUNICATION

 

 

 

Cooperation of Parents and Educational Staff

 

An important part of the educational philosophy regards the participation of parents (home teacher) in the educational work. According to international bibliography, every successful educational intervention requires cooperation with the family. Parents are thought to play an important role in the educational process.

 

 

 

Communication Module Design

 

Communication module is based on INTECOM, Sue Jones' experiential seminar for communication

(1990), because it involves both parents and experts/teachers, which was thought to benefit mutual understanding in educational issues.

 

 

The training module - communication has five e-submodules (we called them e-steps)  for the parents in which parents are guided to observe their child’s current level of communication skill, the environment in which their child is communicating (stimulative/non-stimulative) and  how they can contribute/encourage their child’s communication skills.  Each e-step has embedded links which lead to additional explanations or/and to the communication with child’s (home)teacher. For this purpose, also a theoretical e-seminar for teachers is designed – also divided in five e-steps, which go thematically parallel with the five e-steps of the home teacher-parents’ module.
