Summary:

This manual presents a collection of activities that can be useful in the development or enhancement of competencies to meet the challenges of early intervention service coordination. Training activities are based upon three core principles: the importance of the family-provider partnership, participant-centered instruction, and collaboration. Activities are designed to help participants learn strategies for (a) supporting families, (b) developing resources, (c) building partnerships, (d) facilitating teams, (e) engaging in self care, and (f) developing leadership and making change. Following an overview of the guide is a trail map of activities that guide users to the most relevant activities for their purpose. Activities include warm-ups, energizers, stories, eco-maps, panels, and other activities that vary by group size. Each trail mix activity is structured to include the purpose of the activity, approximate time needed, the trainers' needs in order to complete the activity, instructions to help guide the activity, talking points or questions to guide the activity, and necessary handouts. Some activities are grouped according to similarities in their training method. The last section contains various activities for group interaction and discussion. (Contains approximately 280 references.)
