Sharpening Reflective Practice Skills in Early Care and Education Settings

Reflective practice is a promising approach for understanding and addressing the complex situations that arise in early care and education settings. With a focus on inclusion of children with challenging behavior, disabilities and/or other special needs, this session utilizes sample case studies to identify and practice reflective opportunities for consulting with and mentoring staff. Participants will be introduced to a reflective practice protocol to expand their use of reflective skills, both personally and with others.
