Hi! I've been in the field of early childhood special education (ECSE) for over eight years working as an infant development specialist in the home with families and their children with developmental delays. I also worked as an inclusion specialist supporting young children with special needs in a toddler program. I'm currently completing my ECSE credential/ masters degree at SF State and doing my student teaching in special day class preschool programs. My passion is to build relationships with parents/grandparents and empower them to be advocates for themselves/their children/grandchildren.
Hi Lisa, I stumbled upon this following your suggestion to do an empathy interview, and it so resonates with how I feel about my students and the families I used to work with after they've "graduate" from early intervention. I'm always wondering how to reconnect with them and check-in on how they're doing. Doing an empathy interview may just be the answer I've been looking for, thanks for the inspiration!
