What books and materials will I need for this course?

Books

During the instructional component of the course, each participant will need:

  • One copy of Seeing My Time
  • One copy of Seeing My Time – Instructor’s Manual

For the practicum, each participant in the practice sessions will need a copy of Seeing My Time. If your practice client is a child or adolescent, it is essential that at least one parent participate in the practice sessions as well. Therefore you should order:

  • One copy of Seeing My Time for an adult client (or a college student)
  • Two or more copies of Seeing My Time for a child or adolescent client

We offer course participants 10% off all books purchased up to and during the course. When you register for the course, you will receive a discount code.

Other Materials

During the course you will also need access to

  • Post-It flags
  • Small standard Post-It notes
  • Highlighter pens
  • A large dry erase board (optional, highly recommended)

We will remind you of the materials you will need before each session.

Can I get CEUs for this course?

Yes! The Introduction to Teaching the Sklar Process provides 10 contact hours of professional development and meets the requirements for professional development/continuing education credits in a number of fields and disciplines, including ASHA through its Independent Study option. However requirements vary and we STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU CONTACT YOUR ORGANIZATION BEFORE THE START OF THE COURSE. We would be happy to help you with this process (info@efsuccess.info).

How do I find a practice client?

Past clients or students, family friends, and family members can all make an excellent practice client. The Sklar Process has been used successfully with individuals 4th grade through adult. However, if your practice client is a child or adolescent, at least one parent should attend the sessions as well. Parental participation is key to success for individuals in this age range. Your practice client will need to be willing to meet for roughly an hour a week for seven or eight weeks.

You are responsible for finding a practice client. Obtaining a practice client is essential for this course.

What if I need to miss a class?

Don’t worry! All the webinar sessions will be recorded and available to you in case you miss a class or want to review the lecture. However, we request that you participate in at least six of the webinars live. We don’t want you to miss your chance to share and ask questions.

How exactly does the webinar work? Do I need special technology?

The webinars are very user-friendly. You will need access to the internet with a computer or tablet. The only additional technology you will need is a headset with a microphone.

Each week we will send you an email before class and you will enter the webinar “class room” with a single click. Inside the “classroom” you will be able to see and hear Marydee and her slide show. You will also be able speak using your computer’s microphone and be seen using your web camera.

We will have technology support available to answer your questions and help you with any difficulties that arise during the webinars. We know that for many of you, this is your first webinar. If you have any questions, please contact us (madeline@efsuccess.info). We want to make this a wonderful experience for you!
