New Infographics: "Role Guide: Child Care Specialists"

This Venn Diagram visualizes the roles of professionals who work closely with children with special needs and disabilities. The use of a transactional process illustrates the expertise and overlaps among these professionals whose ultimate goal is to reach the child's fullest potential.

As you can see, the expertise of each profession are written within the primary colors (red, blue, and yellow), while words within the (bisectional) overlap requires co-facilitation and collaboration between two or more professionals. The central overlap (texts in the middle) signifies the ultimate outcomes for the child which are identified by the professionals, family members, and the child (if necessary).

Other health and social care professionals are included to show as to what professional transaction they are primarily involved. However, for this diagram the OT, ST, and SpEd professions are the only ones that are thoroughly described.

If you think that there are more roles to be added or removed, please comment below because this diagram hopes to spark a professional and collaborative dialogue among professionals concerned.

Feel free to share, like, and comment! :)
