Kelly Ott and Lara Wakefield, from SMARTER Steps discuss a growing concern they have in the field of special education and related services: the lack of quality mentoring available to new practitioners.
Kelly and Lara have noticed a trend with new special educators and related services providers. These new practitioners are expressing concern that they have not:
- been taught skill sets on how to engage in collegial discussions,
- present evidence in a way that shows they have considered all angles
- lack models and practice sessions for implementing these skills
How can we help new practitioners find quality mentors?
