Effective Communication Strategies Presentation Competency Evaluate effective strategies for conflict management between professionals and families. Scenario You are the director of an accredited early childhood program. You understand the importance of communication with your program families and value the perspective of the parents and guardians, supporting the Developmentally Appropriate Practice guideline of establishing reciprocal relationships with families. Your program’s Parent Advisory Board (PAB) agrees with you and has indicated concern about the potential need for conflict management between the staff and families. Therefore, the PAB has assigned to you the task of researching and evaluating some effective communication strategies to healthily address such conflict and enhance positive relationship-building opportunities between educators and families. Instructions Research effective communication strategies for an early childhood program. Then, create a PowerPoint presentation that identifies five effective communication strategies that support positive relationship-building opportunities. The presentation information should explain how each strategy can enhance relationship-building opportunities between educators and families. Include reference citations to provide research support for the strategies’ effectiveness. Design a presentation presenting your five identified effective communication strategies for use in the early childhood program. Your PowerPoint will consist of at least 7 slides total, including the following elements: Slide 1: Include your name and the title “Effective Communication Strategies”. Slides 2 through 6: Identify and explain each of your five identified effective communication strategies. On each slide, include a brief description of each strategy, followed by a brief statement of the expected outcome. In the notes section below the slide, further explain the description and outcome for that strategy, as potential talking points if you were discussing the slide’s main points with a group. Include in-text citations to provide research support for the effectiveness of each strategy. Slide 7: Include the reference list with APA formatted citations to support the in-text citations in your slides. Remember visuals will add to your presentation.
