Early Intervention

Skilled (Early) Intervention: Using Flexible, Activity-based, Burst of Support Scheduling to Implement Natural Learning Environment Practices

Thursday, November 8
8:30 AM - 5:30 PM
Location: Kelly - chattanoogan Hotel

When working in early intervention, Part C requires all practitioners to provide evidence-based interventions within the context of real-life routines and activities. During this course participants will learn about the characteristics of natural learning environment practices and what it looks like via video review and discussion for pediatric physical therapists to use these practices while also focusing on skilled interventions to support achievement of child and family outcomes. More specifically, practitioners will explore new tools and strategies for using FAB Scheduling (Flexible, Activity-Based, Bursts of Support) to maximize caregiver engagement.
