Selected Cases

Effectively interviewing any child with or without disabilities involves at least the consideration of 3 areas: Part I: Pre-interview data gathering; Part II: Preparation for the interview; and Part III: Conducting the interview itself. Two case scenarios are presented which try to illustrate this process. Points to Remember are also provided which can help support more effective interviewing as well involving children with disabilities.

Points to Consider

This is a summary of Basic Points to remember when intervening with a child with a disability from the moment that child/young person arrives in your location.  Important to consider as it could set the tone for what is to follow.  It is worth the effort to alert all personnel to these concerns to help promote a more successful intervention on many levels.
