As the weather warms up, early interventionists have chances to expand their horizons and those of the children with whom they work by taking therapy outdoors. Working outside affords unique opportunities to practice listening in noise and in less structured settings and to address auditory and language development goals in new contexts. This presentation provides creative ideas for targeting auditory and language goals through fun, developmentally appropriate activities.
