I need help in giving a presentation to teachers and parents to encourage partnerships in theeducation of the whole child. In this scenario I am the director of a preschool program that serves children ages three to five. The objective of the presentation is to encourage adaptive skills and to facilitate strategies in which to maximize these abilities that can be taught in the classroom and extended at home.
I need to address self-help skills, pro-social skills and self-regulation skills by:
1. Explain the desired skills and how they relate to the classroom and home.
2. Identify and discuss two to three strategies for teaching the skill-set to children in the classroom.
3. Explain how you will help parents to utilize the strategies to reinforce the desired ability at home.
4. Identify and describe a resource (either community or web-based) for the parents to use to continue their learning at home.
