McWilliam, R. A.
Zero to Three (J), v31 n4 p11-16 Mar 2011

The author describes the top 10 mistakes commonly made in early intervention, including what happens at intake, assessment, plan development, and delivery of services. He proposes five practices as a natural-environments approach to fixing these mistakes. The essence of this alternative approach is to recognize natural caregivers, such as parents and child care providers, as intervention agents and to ensure children are getting valid interventions
