The Team Approach to Educational Decision-Making: Increasing the Effectiveness of IEP Teams. Facilitator's Manual for Module Two. Component Two: Communication Skills.
Anderlini, Lyn Starr
The facilitator's manual offers information for conducting a workshop to teach regular educators, special educators, and parents of handicapped children communication skills as they relate to decisions in the individualized education program (IEP) team meeting. Three presentations provide participants with an increased awareness of the need for openness and trust in interpersonal communication, an explanation of the communication process and the effectiveness of two way communication within a team, and information on the basic sending and receiving skills necessary for effective communication within IEP teams. Complete texts for the presentations are provided as well as step by step guidelines for an activity for practicing communication skills. Among the topics covered are group communications, sending and receiving messages effectively, paraphrasing, and barriers to effective communication. A participant's handbook on team skill communication is also included. (SB)
