AT the Closing the Gap Conference this year, I'll be doing a preconference workshop called "Put Me In Coach!" where we will spend the day talking about how we choose the support strategies that we use in our AT practice. There's a lot about Coaching, but we'll also be discussing the essential elements of Consultation and Collaboration. I'm particularly interested in how we decide whether to act as a consultant, to collaborate with an educator or family to increase AT implementation or whether a coaching approach is the best option.
