For the advancement of AV practice, the development of progressive educators must be a high priority. While the process of development and interaction with the child and family must be diagnostic so should the process be for practitioners across their clients, program, and indeed the field. Educators and practitioners are active consumers of published research and descriptive or instructive literature. Professionals involved should be contributors to the area with their own projects, programs of research, or contributions to professional associations. Professionals also need to develop skills to contribute to the development of other professionals through teaching, demonstrating, and mentoring.
This course is administered by the RIDBC Renwick Centre. Successful completion of this course may require students to source their own textbooks and attend compulsory lecture days in Sydney.
