Early Intervention Primary Service Provision in Natural Environments (WEB19083)

Presenter(s): Naomi Younggren, PhD
Course Description

Primary service provision in natural environments is a service delivery approach that is increasingly used with young children and families in early intervention. This team approach – where one professional is identified as the primary provider for the family and receives coaching support from other team members – can present challenges for some professionals and families due to the extension or release of more traditional roles. In this session, presenter Naomi Younggren explores some foundational underpinnings of the delivery model and discusses its key components for successful implementation, including how children learn in their natural environments, how family-centered practices are integral to intervention, and how principles of adult learning are critical to making intervention successful. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Birth to Three: Working Together to Serve Children and Their Families.”
