About DEC Learning Decks

  • Webinars are hosted on Zoom.

Upcoming Learning Decks:

  • Registrants will receive a link for the webinar and handouts from presenters.

  • All Learning Deck sessions will be recorded, archived, and available for purchase in case participants miss a session or want to sign up for a session which they cannot attend on the date offered. 

Archived Learning Decks: 

  • Archived Learning Deck purchases will also be sent via email. This process can take 1-3 business days. 

Certificates of Attendance: 

  • Individual live webinar purchases include one certificate of attendance.

  • Group orders and archived webinar purchases do not include certificates of attendance. 

​Placing an Order: 

  • All Learning Decks, upcoming & archived, are available for purchase. 

  • Purchase orders and credit card payments are accepted. 

  • Orders can be placed here. You will be taken to a separate website to upload your purchase order or complete payment via credit card.

Group Logistics:

For each group order, the purchaser will need to designate a host. If the group is placing an order for a live webinar, the host will receive a link to log on to the webinar platform. All group members will need to view the webinar from the same location using the host's computer.* 

The Difference Between Large Group and Statewide or National Purchases: 

Group pricing allows the purchaser to complete a one time viewing for a group of participants of a certain size. If an agency (e.g. a Part C/619 program) purchases statewide access, then they would be able to use the webinar for ongoing training and would not need to repurchase for each group. 

*Due to the COVID-19 Outbreak, group members can temporarily view the webinars in separate locations as long as the number of participants does not surpass the number of group members included in the original webinar purchase.

Balanced Intervention - Supporting Caregiver and Child Learning during EI/ECSE Visits

This webinar was recorded August 12th, 2021, 3:00 to 4:00 PM Eastern Time. 

Description: You know how to teach children; it’s your super power. Do you know how to teach adults too? As an early interventionist or an ECSE teacher using virtual parent coaching, it is becoming more and more essential that you have an understanding of how caregivers learn. Join this webinar to discover how integrating six adult learning principles into your practice can help you balance the intervention you provide so that both learners – the caregiver and the child – are engaged and learning during and between visits!


Participant Outcomes:

1. Recognize the link between caregiver coaching and adult learning
2. Identify 6 adult learning principles
3. Learn from a mother of a preschooler who also received EI about the importance of supporting caregiver learning via video clips
4. Gain at least 5 strategies for integrating adult learning principles into coaching practices with families
5. Plan for how to use what they learn after the webinar by focusing on a specific principle or strategy to add to their practice.
