Course Introduction

Are you new to working with the Birth-to-3 crowd, or just looking to brush up your knowledge of best practice and add to your therapy toolbox (or wheeled tote/overstuffed closet/however you roll)?

This collection of five research reviews is focused on those therapy how-tos—specific research-backed strategies that you can implement right away. Sometimes our therapy with this population can be so deceptively subtle (are we just playing??) that it can be reinvigorating to remember the methods behind our madness.
