Effective interpersonal communication is the key to building staff/parent partnerships. This partnership recognizes and supports the significant role that parents play in the Head Start program and in the lives of their children.
Effective staff/parent communication is a two-way process, where both staff and parents give and receive information and feel valued.
People respond positively to communications that are relevant and appealing, and that are expressed clearly. By understanding and employing the factors that contribute to successful communications, staff can increase the effectiveness of their communications with parents.
Case Study on Communication While standing in the reception area of the Head Start center where you work, you Betsy Ruiz, a parent waiting for her child. She confides in you that she is three months pregnant with her second child. Since you have a bit of free time, you decide to take this opportunity to discuss some oral health care issues with her, and so you bring her back to your office.
Case Study on Communication How would you address Betsy’s needs using a passive communication tool? How you would address Betsy’s needs in a one-on-one situation? How would you address Betsy’s needs in a group setting?
