Field Placement II (ECE Resource Consulting) - OEL1306
This field placement experience extends the students` understanding of the role of the ECE Resource Consultant. Working as a member of the service team, students act in accordance with legislative regulations, agency policies and professional standards. They will demonstrate family-centred strategies as they guide families to navigate potential supports and services and make recommendations that support the healthy development of children living with special needs. Through the use of reciprocal communication and evidence-informed practices, they will apply the principles of adult learning in order to co-ordinate and facilitate case management meetings, educational opportunities and referral discussions. They will reflect upon their consultation practices, evaluate strengths and challenges, and create a plan for further professional development.Note: The facilitator in this course does not provide placement services, collect police/medical checks or provide affiliation agreements on behalf of students registered at colleges other than Seneca. With the support of the registering college all students should be ready at the start of the course to provide the facilitator with the agency name, location, contact name and the agreed upon hours/dates of placement. The facilitator will liaise with agency to conduct the students assessment.
