Naturalistic Intervention for Toddlers in the Childcare Setting
Nowell, S., Sam, A., Waters, V., Dees, R., Amsbary, J., & AFIRM Team.
Naturalistic Intervention (NI) is an evidence-based practice (EBP) consisting of a collection of techniques and strategies that are embedded in typical activities and/or routines in which the toddler participates to naturally promote, support, and encourage target skills/behaviors. NI is commonly implemented by caregivers coached by an early intervention provider, which is how NI will be presented in this module.
The AFIRM for Toddlers modules are designed for early intervention providers working with caregivers (families and childcare providers) of toddlers.
