The Routines-Based Interview: A Method for Gathering Information and Assessing Needs
McWilliam, R. A.; Casey, Amy M.; Sims, Jessica
Infants and Young Children, v22 n3 p224-233 Jul-Sep 2009
There are multiple ways to gather information from families receiving early intervention services (J. J. Woods & D. P. Lindeman, 2008). In this article, we discuss a specific strategy for doing this through information-gathering conversations with families. The routines-based interview (RBI; R. A. McWilliam, 1992, 2005a) was developed to meet a number of needs, including information gathering and planning interventions. A set of 6 steps and 10 quality indicators that comprise the RBI are described, as are findings from a preliminary study on RBI implementation. The discussion contains plans for further research and implementation fidelity criteria.
