PHT 206: Understanding Disability and Best Practices for Communicating a Diagnosis

Course Sponsored by: Lettercase National Center for Prenatal and Postnatal Resources at the University of Kentucky’s Human Development Institute

We have no conflicts of interest to disclose.

The overarching purpose is to give genetic counselors tools to assess the administration of genetic screening and testing in the context of the disability rights movement, to recognize what constitutes balanced information, and to promote culturally competent practice as well as client-centered, informed, non- coercive and value-based decision-making.

The National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) has authorized Lettercase National Center for Prenatal and Postnatal Resources  to offer up to 0.5 CEUs or 5 Category 1 contact hours for the activity Understanding Disability and Best Practices for Communicating a Diagnosis.The American Board of Genetic Counseling (ABGC) will accept CEUs earned at this program for the purposes of genetic counselor certification and recertification. These objectives map to the Accreditation Council of Genetic Counseling (ACGC) Practiced Based Competencies 2a, 11a &b, 13a) (2019), as well as the NSGC Code of Ethics (I1, II4&5, IV4) (2017).

Learning Objectives

  1. Examine how the basic history of disability rights has impacted life outcomes for people with disabilities and the importance of recognizing current supports, services, and life outcomes when communicating about prenatal screening and testing for genetic conditions.
  2. Critically assess policies and practices that impact the provision of genetic information at the moment of diagnosis of a genetic condition.
  3. Define best practices for discussing prenatal screening and testing and delivering a prenatal or postnatal diagnosis of Down syndrome with accuracy, sensitivity, and cultural awareness.

FET 12: Course Wrap Up Summer 2020

Congratulations!  You have completed FET 1-11 and all 17 hours of the Fundamentals of Effective Training hybrid course!  Give yourself a round of applause!

We know that you have spent many hours working hard on learning how to become a more effective trainer and we greatly appreciate all the hard work and effort that you put in during the process.

We hope that your process was smooth and that you are excited to become a trainer and share your knowledge with the Early Childhood Education field.

FET 11: Transfer of Learning Summer 2020

When the training is over, it is not really over! This section of FET is going to explore how participants and trainers move beyond the training setting to more completely fulfill the impact that effective training is to have – which is to ‘lead to a change in behavior that provides improved quality of services to children and families.’ This transfer is commonly referred to as the Transfer of Learning.

Effective Training: instructional experiences designed to develop new knowledge, skills and behaviors that are expected to be applied immediately upon or within a short period of time after arrival on or returning to the job.

Transfer of Learning: the intentional and ongoing application of knowledge and implementation of skills and behaviors in the workplace, gained in the training session’s learning experiences.

If trainers design an effective training that includes activities to support the transfer of learning, and participants follow through back in the workplace, the end result is:

  • More involvement from the director.
  • Lasting change in behavior of the staff.
  • Improved outcomes for children and families.

FET 5: Training Design: Outlining Training Content Summer 2020

Fundamentals of Effective Training: Training Design is all about how to design a training session.  Training design will include the details, major tasks, and sub tasks that are necessary when designing a training.  Throughout this lesson you will gain information, strategies, and practical opportunities that will support and prepare you to create a focused, sequenced, and active training session.

 When developing a Training Plan there are 7 steps/questions to be answered in order to have an effective and quality training. 

Step 1 – Who?

Step 2 – Why?

Step 3 – When?

Step 4 – Where?

Step 5 – What For?

Step 6 – What?

Step 7 – How?

Each step in developing a training plan asks a question that focuses on an important part of the planning process.  By the end of FET: Training Design you will be familiar with all 7 steps.

FET 2: Effective Trainers and Training Summer 2020

To be an effective trainer, one must know not only the specific content that training participants have signed up to learn, but also understand how the human brain is structured as well as how it develops from birth to adulthood and works to acquire, store, and use new information that it receives.

One must apply information about how these structures and processes impact adult learners. Our goal is to create optimal conditions for adult learning that create changes in workplace behavior to improve outcomes for children and families in early care and education settings.
