 MODULE: Naturalistic Intervention

Are Any Assessments Needed Before Initiating A Naturalistic Intervention Program?

Before implementing a naturalistic intervention, the team member should have an understanding of the learner’s daily routines and activities. For a young learner, this may include preschool, meals at home, time at a childcare provider’s house, dressing routines, and bath/bedtime routines. For an older learner, examples of daily routines may include time in a general education classroom, time in a resource room, Boy Scout meetings, chores at home, meals at home and school, and after-school clubs.  Conversations with families and other team members will help the team member identify appropriate activities and routines into which naturalistic intervention can be embedded.
