Naturalistic interventions, which combine behavioral and developmental interventions, are being implemented in a number of educational and clinical settings. As part of the practice in our pediatric clinic, we are treating younger and younger children, targeting early prelinguistic and engagement skills, and focusing on natural, playful exchanges between children and others. This course will describe several empirically validated naturalistic interventions, describe some of their features, and discuss how they are currently being used in our clinical setting.
