The Illinois Early Intervention Training Program has approved this in-person session for 1.5 hours of EI credential credit in the area of Intervention.
Research has shown that infants and toddlers learn best through everyday experiences and interactions with familiar people in familiar contexts. This session will explore principles and strategies of routines-based intervention, coaching, and interprofessional practice, which can help achieve better outcomes for children in early intervention programs. The speaker will discuss national key principles, discuss and compare specific literature and agreed-upon principles, and explain strategies SLPs can integrate into their work with very young children.
