Using Routines-Based Interventions in Early Childhood Special Education
Jennings, Danielle; Hanline, Mary Frances; Woods, Juliann
Dimensions of Early Childhood, v40 n2 p13-23 2012
Embedding early intervention activities into routines and activities of early care and education programs can result in increased skill development for young children with special needs or developmental delays. Routines-based interventions must be implemented through ongoing collaboration and communication among teachers, families, intervention specialists, therapists, and other Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) team members to be effective. By understanding the components of embedding interventions in natural environments, early education professionals participate with other IFSP team members to plan for interventions in their program that will target the child's developmental outcomes. Partnering with specialists and families in a consultative approach supports teachers' capacity to implement a child's early intervention strategies successfully into daily routines and activities.
