This field placement experience introduces students to the work of ECE resource consulting. Building on prior skills and knowledge, students will examine current legislation, policies and evidence-informed practices and reflect on how the role of the RECE and ECE Resource Consultant complement each other to support children living with special needs and their families. They will demonstrate collaborative professional practices as they promote and advocate inclusive policies and environments. In consultation with the service team, students will select, administer and interpret observation techniques and screening tools in order to contribute information to the Family Service Plan. In addition, they will recommend program adaptations and modifications that demonstrate the principles of early learning pedagogy and inclusive play-based early learning practices, empower parents as decision-makers, and reflect on the effectiveness of those strategies.
