1. Principles of Intervention
In this chapter, we will review general components of therapy (i.e., planning choosing goals, choosing and implementing procedures, and providing rationales) with a focus on evidence-based practice.
2. Therapy Approaches
In this chapter, the continuum of child-directed to adult-directed strategies will be presented with an emphasis on blended approaches, that is, focused language stimulation and enhanced milieu teaching. Demonstrations will be provided.
