Rethinking Early Childhood Intervention services | Dr Tim Moore
Early childhood intervention is more than therapy. As learning mainly takes place between sessions, it’s important for professionals to partner with families to nurture their children’s development in everyday environments.
Dr Tim Moore shares his insights on the power of families and communities in making this happen. Other topics discussed for positive outcomes include early learning environments; the role of families, relationships and daily routines; and involving children meaningfully in home and community life.
