Accreditation Check:

Federal legislation authorizing early intervention services for infants and toddlers with disabilities (Part C of IDEA) provides clear instruction: EI is to be provided to the maximum extent appropriate in natural environments, such as home or community. Intervention provided in the natural environment of the child has clear advantages, with increased opportunities to impact brain plasticity by practicing meaningful tasks within the environment where the child lives, grows, plays, and participates in activities with families and peers. The topics in this course will include the development of fun, age-appropriate intervention programs to promote a child's ability to move as based on evidence-based principles of motor development, motor control, and motor learning. This is part one in a two-part course on Early Intervention: Implementing High Quality Intervention in Natural Settings.
