Module Two: Lesson One

Activity

Developing your Script

The ability to describe the Early Steps service delivery philosophy to families, service providers and other stakeholders is essential in your role as a provider in the Early Steps system. In this activity, you will read an article, Is Being a Good SLP Good Enough?, in which a speech-language pathologist shares her experiences and insights as she begins to provide services in an early intervention family-centered system that provides services in the child's and family's everyday routines, activities, and places. After you have read the article, you will write a script that you can use to explain the Early Steps service delivery philosophy. Once you have written your script, you will be able to compare it to one developed for this activity.
