Requesting a Second Opinion: Scenarios 1–4 in the Trainer’s Resource Materials (one scenario for the trainer to model and two or more for the participants); one set of all four scenarios per participant
Requesting a Second Opinion: Scenarios 1–4 – Keys; for the trainer only
The goal of this activity is for each participant to role-play a discussion with his or her supervisor regarding a challenging scenario.
Ask participants to select a partner. For each scenario, participants will play the role of a recruiter reporting the case and a supervisor listening. Partners will complete the Child Eligibility Checklist, develop a timeline based on the facts of the case, and make an eligibility determination.
Model this process using Scenario 1 (Raul). You will be the recruiter and the participants will be the supervisor.
Ask participants to read Scenario 1.
Present the facts of the case, talk through the Child Eligibility Checklist, and demonstrate the timeline. (See the Requesting a Second Opinion: Scenario 1 – Key for the completed checklist.)
Ask participants to answer the questions on the back of their Scenario 1 handouts and make an eligibility determination.
After five minutes, conduct a whole group discussion of their answers.
Raul is not eligible for MEP services. (Use the Requesting a Second Opinion: Scenario 1 – Key to explain the eligibility determination.)
