Presenter: Monica G. Osgood
This plenary session will introduce participants to The DIR model’s expanded intervention goals through the Foundational Capacities for Development (FCD™) to include the experiences that promote (functional) competence and meaning for an individual across the lifespan. The FCD’s™ provide foundations tailored to the child and family’s’ individual profiles that allow every individual to maximize the benefits of the DIR model! Learn how understanding individual differences while providing a broad range of experiences, respectful expectations and fostering functional and reliable communication shape a sense of self in individuals with diverse needs, and how families, clinicians and educators can grow with them. This plenary session will include a review of experiences and interactions that support or get in the way of developing core competencies to function successfully, and how anxiety and behaviors impact on progress.
