Tell us a little about your approach to early intervention:
Empowering the family and developing a respectful and compassionate relationship with the family are important to me when working in early intervention. I provide intervention in the home by providing strategies and ideas to parents or a caregiver to use in the child’s natural environment. In this manner the parents learn skills that can help improve their child’s communication skills in day to day activities. I want to support the family and encourage the child to reach his/her full potential.
