Consideration of Early Intervention Consultation Frameworks in School Psychology

This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 2,7
  • Skill Level: Intermediate
  • Session 11: Consultation and Collaboration With Educators and Parents

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. specify how using consultation frameworks when working with families can enhance the development of infant social–emotional competencies.
  2. understand how consultation frameworks developed and validated in K–12 contexts can be extended to working with families within Part C early intervention services.
  3. identify the utility of the TAPP model in working with parents of infants and toddlers within Part C programs.


School psychologists receive training in providing evidence-based consultation within K–12 contexts as well as training in human development. However, there are limited training opportunities to obtain practical experiences in evidence-based consultation with caregivers of infants and toddlers and with the early learning personnel that serve them. This poster will review the application of evidence-based consultation frameworks within early intervention settings and graduate training needs. Implications for providing consultation within early intervention services will be discussed.
