A Multidisciplinary Approach to Family-Centered Service

At the John Tracy Clinic, we know there are many factors that must be considered and supported: family dynamics, oral/gross/fine motor development, auditory access, sensory, speech, additional diagnosis, social skills, and cognition. Through this multidisciplinary approach we work together as a team alongside the family and give them hope, guidance, and encouragement.

During this session, participants will:

  • Identify important team members in a multidisciplinary team.
  • Explain the benefits of a cohesive team when delivering services for a family.
  • Identify productive ways to collaborate with multiple service providers and families.
