Plan for Implementation

  • Identify the purpose for communication
  • At this point, Shawanda (the teacher) needs to gain a better understanding of Ashley’s (the therapist’s) role and her ideas about how they should work together to address David’s learning goals in the classroom. This means that Shawanda needs to gather additional information and verify it before she can share her own ideas and work with Ashley to develop a plan together.
  • Review recommended communication strategies
  • Review the communication strategies that are used to seek and verify information in Handout 3.1.
  • Select specific communication strategies that will be implemented
  • Complete the implementation plan to show how Shawanda (the teacher) will use specific communication strategies to help her seek and verify information in future meetings with Ashley (the therapist). Note that Shawanda can also use other communication strategies related to attending and active listening, or joining and supporting while she is seeking and verifying information.
