Routines-Based Intervention

Authors: Anne Marie Cellante, MS.Ed & Jenna Lequia, Ph.D.

Young children grow and develop in the context of their family. Early intervention programs address this by providing intervention services in natural environment and incorporating family routines into intervention implementation. A naturalistic teaching method to early intervention, Routines-based Intervention, is one naturalistic approach that can be used alone or in combination with other intervention approaches. This module will outline assessment, planning, and implementation considerations for Routines-based Interventions.

These online learning modules are part of the New York State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP), Improving Family Centeredness Together (IFaCT) Project, aimed to improve family-centeredness in early intervention. The project is funded by the New York State Department of Health Bureau of Early Intervention.
