Recommended practices in early intervention strongly emphasize the importance of supporting caregiver learning throughout the EI process. EI service providers can use adult learning principles and practices during visits with families to help caregivers actively learn strategies they can use with their children to enhance development during daily activities.
Adult learning principles can also be applied to professional development for EI service providers. Here you will find resources, such as articles, handouts, and other resources related to applying adult learning principles and strategies to early intervention service delivery and professional development.
