Presenters: Michelle Dawson, MS, CCC-SLP, CLC and Erin Forward, MSP, CF-SLP
In this episode Michelle is joined once again by Erin Forward, MSP CF-SLP, where they will tackle the often elusive but ideal Interprofessional Practice approach for Early Intervention. Michelle and Erin, amongst countless other EI Clinicians out there in the field, often feel completely alone and isolated when treating patients in their natural environments. Do you too struggle with lack of team support, lack of open dialogue between practitioners, and do you also often feel that these breakdowns do a disservice to the patient and their progress? Well today’s episode is all about inspiring change and learning how to embrace and establish a true Interprofessional Practice in the world of EI. 

By the end of this PodCourse, participants will be able to identify and describe:

  1. The difference between Interprofessional Practice, Multi-disciplinary Practice, and Trans-Discpilinary Practice.
  2. Three different resources that they can use to establish an IPP in the world of EI.
  3. Three steps to take towards establishing an IPP in the world of Early Intervention.
About Erin: Erin Forward, MS CF-SLP, is a recent graduate from University of South Carolina, with a Masters in Speech Language Pathology. She completed her undergraduate degree in both Psychology and Communication Science and Disorders at the University of Pittsburgh. Her passions in the field of speech pathology lie with pediatric dysphagia, feeding, and AAC, specifically in patients with developmental disabilities. This interest came from her time working at the Children’s Institute of Pittsburgh and through her feeding experiences in practicums in a variety of settings including: early-intervention, outpatient clinics, and inpatient acute care at a children’s hospital. Working with Michelle Dawson during the summer of 2017 fueled her desire to dig deeper into pediatric dysphagia specifically and to advocate for the needs of those patients who are affected by it.
