Examples of Naturalistic Approaches to Intervention. Milieu : Focuses on bridging the gap between the training environment and the natural environment Nurturant-naturalistic : Moves from direct instruction to education in which the child takes the interactive lead and to naturalistic contexts.
Milieu : Focuses on bridging the gap between the training environment and the natural environment
Nurturant-naturalistic: Moves from direct instruction to education in which the child takes the interactive lead and to naturalistic contexts.
Joint-action: Establishes structured interaction routines through which to teach skills
Transactional Intervention Program: Focuses on the quality of the interactive behavioral match between children and their primary caregivers
Natural Language Teaching: Developed for children with Autism
Goal: To improve children’s acquisition and use of important motor, social, affective, communication, and intellectual behaviors that, in turn are integrated into response repertoires that are generative, functional, and adaptable. (Bricker & Cripe, 1992).
