Five Phases of Educational Treatment

One of the basic principles in Active Learning is the Five Phases of Educational Treatment.  We strongly encourage you to familiarize yourself with these phases in order to effectively implement an Active Learning approach.  In providing activities for those with special needs, the Five Phases of Educational Treatment identify the adult's role in recognizing the emotional level of a learner and the key factors in building a trusting relationship between educator and student, parent/caregiver and child.  Only after trust has been established, can an adult be an effective role model and educator for those individuals with multiple special needs.
