In PA Infant Toddler Early Intervention programs, Family Guided Routines Based Intervention (FGRBI) has been identified as the effective practice for providing high-quality home visits and itinerant services. This learning path is a sequence of resources organized to provide a basic understanding of SS-OO-PP-RR and the Family 5Q, the two frameworks utilized in FGRBI. It is appropriate for anyone working in IT EI programs, regardless of their discipline, caseload size or full-time or part-time status. For those who work directly with families and caregivers in their homes, this learning path will provide the foundational knowledge to prepare them to join a Professional Learning Community (PLC) or Trio Group as the next step on their journey to becoming endorsed as a PA Early Intervention Coach.
Beginning with EI Service Delivery: Coaching Across Setting, each item on the learning path is a prerequisite for the next step. As you complete one step, you will gain access to the next. This may be through a survey code, a registration key, or automatic enrollment in the next step.
Upon completion of the Final Evaluation in the Course Wrap-Up section of the SS-OO-PP-RR online course, the SS-OO-PP-RR Webinar section will unlock providing information about and options for the SS-OO-PP-RR Webinar.
If you haven’t completed EI Service Delivery and FGRBI, click the links below to access these courses. If you have completed both, you will have access to SS-OO-PP-RR under “My Courses” after you log into the EITA training site.
