Early Intervention: Routines, Problem Solving, and Assessments, Oh My!
Behavior Analysts know the importance of early intervention and strive to support children ages 0-3 who may not be achieving certain milestones.

- The participant will provide examples of milestones for children ages 0-3 acquired within daily routines;
- The participant will demonstrate ways in which they can find motivation for early learners;
- The participant will identify different types of assessments for early learners and the pros and cons of each
