Young children learn through the interactions they have within their environments. These interactions include all of the people who support them (parents, family members, interventionists, therapists, childcare providers, and other practitioners). This session will focus on how practitioners can help parents, families, and other adult caregivers develop the types of interactions needed to have a lasting positive impact on the learning of their young children with disabilities.


  • Explore strategies for helping families understand early communication attempts of children before language is developed or in the presence of a delay or disability
  • Explore how adult-child interactions change to promote children’s learning
  • Explore the role of the environment in the interaction between parent and child
