  • Session 11: Consultation and Collaboration With Educators and Parents

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. describe how the delivery of information via social media fits into a comprehensive role as outlined by the NASP Practice Model.
  2. become familiar with a school-based consultation program and innovations in its delivery of services during school dismissal and physical distancing.
  3. learn about the details and implications of using social media as a tool to provide access to information to caregivers during physical distancing.


The current study analyzed the provision of evidence-based behavior and social–emotional learning strategies via short, animated video clips through social media (SM). Analyses targeted accessibility outcomes; specifically total views, impressions, and number of countries reached. Results showed English videos were viewed more than other languages with significantly greater number of views in Spanish, Portuguese, and Mandarin on Facebook. Participants will learn about details and implications of using SM to provide information to caregivers during physical distancing.
