A team approach is used wih one member serving as the primary service provider who works with the child and primary caregiver based on the child's needs, family concerns, and priorities. The primary service provider supports the family in carrying out the intervention recommended by other team members and works to ensure that the primary caregiver acquires the skills necessary to support ongoing intervention to the child.
