Please join Dathan Rush and M’Lisa Shelden in a thought-provoking discussion on the critical (non-negotiable) use of real-life routines as the context for early intervention visits in both home and child care settings. The group will engage in a deep dive discussion on how and why use of context-based intervention determines effectiveness of coaching, care provider engagement, and child and family outcomes. Presenters (and participants) will role play joint planning in complicated situations, debrief video examples, and practice how to maximize flexibility when scheduling. The presenters will share detailed information about FAB Scheduling and will also discuss the challenges to fully embracing the belief that early intervention support is NOT a Monday-Friday, 8:00-5:00 occupation! If this notion causes anxiety or trepidation…it’s OKAY, no judgement here, just an open discussion about the undeniable challenges, seemingly insurmountable barriers, AND the irrefutable benefits of scheduling practices that are Flexible, Activity-based, and use Bursts of Support (FAB).
