Description: Connections happen before we even walk in the door, we have to be aware that whatever the initial team did sets the stage for good or for bad for us as providers. Not judging the team and not judging the family is imperative, also understanding that who we are and what our cultural beliefs and our education are shape what we perceive as important, this is important to be aware of as each family comes with their own beliefs about what is important for children and they come with their unique knowledge base. Learn what to do in the first 3 visits laying the foundations for creating an atmosphere of collaboration and trust to ensure the optimal growth for the family/child.
