FCEI Principles in Perspective?Exploring the Issues from Multiple Angles is the FCEI virtual-learning series. Running between February to October 2021, these live, sign-language interpreted, interactive webinars will be free to participants. Each webinar will address a topic from the point-of-view of professionals, Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) adults, and parents in a facilitated discussion.What do we mean by cultural competence? The myriad of ways this concept impacts family-centred early intervention include everything from geographic and socio-economic considerations to Deaf Cultural values. In this session, we will explore the FCEI principles that affirm the importance of shared decision making within a team of professionals and parents where all members are equal. What are there barriers to this? Do we bring unintentional, unconscious bias and beliefs to our early intervention interactions? What is the influence of power and privilege in an early intervention session?
