Staff retreat for South East Early Intervention
The South East Early Intervention team recently trekked to Moab for a half-day retreat/staff meeting and a self-funded, self-guided trip down the Colorado River.
South East Early Intervention, based in Price, provides early identification and developmental services for families of children from birth to three years old in Emery, Carbon and Grand Counties. The program is administered through the Exemplary Services Division of Utah State University’s Center for Persons with Disabilities.
The staff and nurses from SEEI also invited their Spanish interpreters, speech-language pathologists, consultants and workers from the Parent/Infant Program through the Utah Schools for the Deaf and Blind.
Canyon Voyages River Company provided rafts and gear and the day offered dramatic clouds, but little wind and no rain or cold temperatures.
“Why is everyone so worried? You can’t end up in the river on this flat stretch!” said early interventionist Audrey Graham, right before she fell out of a boat in White’s Rapid. A “soak the supervisors” water fight was also part of the team-building exercise.
