During implementation of any intervention in a home visiting setting there are many important factors to remember. Though, what I believe to be the most influential when it comes to implementation is the personnel involved. One of the great advantages of home setting intervention is the family members present during the session. Taking this opportunity to not only allow parents, caregivers, siblings etc. to learn from watching you and their loved one, but also allowing them to practice these interventions in real time with you, the professional present and able to provide feedback and answer questions. With early intervention, services are individualized, being in one’s home with access to their family as a means of generalization within intervention implementation allows even more individualized services (McBride & Peterson, 1997). Though this research is dated, it is one of the first of its kind that states the benefits of involving family members, and more current research has found similar results from more research.
