As described in our Certification Steps section, certification is a three-step process. The first two steps can be completed completely online:
- In lieu of attending a workshop, you may instead review the descriptions and select Powerpoint presentations available on this website for each IGDI measure you want to use.
- For the Early Communication Indicator, your scores can be checked automatically if you have a training account on the data system.If you do not get 85% reliability, we will identify where you need improvement, recommend ways to improve your score, and you will repeat the scoring with the same video(s) until you reach at least 85% agreement.
- If your program does not already have an account, Contact us for a free account. Otherwise, talk to your program director about setting up a training account for you.
At this point the third step in the certification process must be completed by either having a certified assessor observe your administration of the IGDI, or by videotaping the administration and giving it to a certified assessor for review.
