This is a completed webinar which was originally sponsored by the CA Physical Therapy Association Pediatric Special Interest Group and the Infant Development Association of CA. A certificate of course completion for CEUs was ONLY available to live attendees (who also paid more than the cost for this product here).
There is ONE video in the presentation that does not stream well. That can be viewed here:
The supplemental handout includes the entire powerpoint slides along with the supplemental parent-friendly handouts (14 pages total).
Below is the description of this webinar from the original course brochure:
"Researchers and experts in the field of early intervention repeatedly find that most graduate programs fail to provide clinicians with knowledge and experience on best practice patterns for the provision of family-centered services as mandated by Part C of IDEA. Without these learning opportunities, many practitioners working in early intervention find themselves reliant on traditional, child-centered therapy practices. One top-down approach for improving early intervention involves pairing experts in specific fields (e.g. PT, OT, SLP, child development), with caregivers, and integrating the best available research in order to shift from child-focused therapy to family- centered intervention. This presentation will describe the evidence, the challenges, and the practice of using everyday activities and routines as a context for family-centered early intervention. Several tools will be shared in order to help clinicians begin using routines- based principles and strategies immediately."
