One Day Course: The Step-Back Program
The Step-back Program has been developed to provide a whole school approach to support educators, caregivers, and other professionals to understand their role in supporting children/young people with additional learning needs to become as independent as possible. The Step-back Approach provides a person-centered planning approach to listen to the child/young person’s voice using the simple, powerful Easy-Easier® Learner’s Voice Resource Tool. This one-day course teaches the Step-back Approach. It focuses on the role of support in maximizing the child/young person’s independence and how to use a structured approach to effectively listening and responding to the child/young person’s voice.
Target Audience: Educators, Administrators, SLP’S, OT’S, PTS, & Family members
Participants will be able to:
• Demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of ‘support’ and the ‘support role’.
• Look at support holistically and examine how and when to ‘step-in’ and how and when to ‘step-back’.
• Understand how to listen and appropriately respond to the voice of the child/young person.
