This critical training for all interventionists in the Birth to Three system is an overview of  best practices including Natural Learning Environments, Coaching as a Style of Interaction, and Primary Service Provider approach to teaming. Focus will be on natural  environment practices that support families and children during their regular, everyday activities.  Outcomes include developing increased competence in using a family’s everyday activities to support learning;  addressing the wealth of learning opportunities possible in an activity vs. focusing on only one skill; understanding that child interest is essential to increased participation and learning; and developing competence in supporting families and other caregivers during their everyday activities.  As one very skilled program director put it: “We really thought we were using natural learning environment practices, but through this training we realized how much deeper we could have been going in order to support our families developing the confidence and competence they need to help their own children.”
