Caregiver Coaching and Routines Based Intervention with Stacey Landberg, M.S., CCC-SLP

Wednesday, May 20, 2020 | 11:00am - 1:00pm

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 to shift from child-focused therapy to family-centered intervention. This presentation touches on the evidence, challenges, and practice of using everyday activities and routines as a context for family-centered early intervention. The speaker shares tools to immediately help clinicians begin using routines-based principles and strategies.
Learning outcomes:

  1. Identify and describe several specific coaching strategies.
  2. Understand the relationship between routines based intervention and adult learning theory
  3. Explain the research supporting family-centered early intervention approaches.
  4. Describe the key characteristics for identifying the best routines to use as contexts for early intervention.
