Session Description

Quality Practices in Identification and Supports for Children in Early Intervention/Early Childhood and Their Families

Poster Roundtables are an opportunity to participate in a discussion of select posters that focus on a common theme. Each roundtable is scheduled during the 75-minute Concurrent Session time slots on Tuesday.

Located in the poster exhibit hall with posters and their speakers situated around a table to facilitate discussion, these small-group sessions will include a very brief introduction of each of the involved posters, with the bulk of the time devoted to open discussion around the common roundtable theme. An engaging and interactive exchange of ideas and interaction between participants is encouraged.
