Based on the philosophy of Mindsight, by Dr. Dan Siegel, Collaborative Advocacy encourages families and educators to explore how to develop positive relationships between the school and home in order to support children. This team approach encourages the development of an individualized approach to best meet the needs of supportive adults and the children they care deeply about.
For schools who would like a third party to assist as a liaison between the school and families at the school, Creative Roots offers a collaborative model to create positive outcomes for children, families and schools. Creative Roots conducts informal assessments, requests input from educators, administration, service providers and families, and makes recommendations for ways to best support all team members.
For families with children working with multiple service providers, including school professionals, Creative Roots also offers collaborative advocacy, a way to collaboratively coordinate services and maintain open communication with a team model to best support the whole child.
Creative Roots offers Behavior Consultation services to families, schools and communities. Services focus on support to address: challenging behaviors, cognition processing, communication skills, self-help activities, and impulse control. Monique works with families and organizations to develop an individualized Functional Assessment and Behavior Support Plan and follow up with educational services to teach caregivers how to carry out and revise the Behavior Support Plan through individual coaching, group training and modeling. Behavior Support Services are available privately and as part of the Medicaid funded Community First Choice State Plan Option.
