Routines Based Interview (RBI) Workshop

The Routines Based Interview (RBI) is an integral tool for working with families and children in Early Childhood Intervention. It is designed to establish a positive relationship with the family, gather information about child and family needs, and develop a list of functional outcomes through a semi-structured interview about the child and family's daily routines.

This 2-day training looks at the content and structure of the RBI, strategies and troubleshooting for interviewing, and practice opportunities
