Video Illustrations of
Family Guided Routines Based Intervention in
Iowa's Early ACCESS System

The videos on this page can be used to promote recommended early intervention practices. They were produced in partnership with families and providers in Iowa to illustrate family guided routines based intervention (FGRBI) practices. Two of these videos illustrate what FGRBI looks like during home visits, narrated by providers and family members who reflect on a number of key strategies and themes. In a third video, a parent offers her perspective on the use of toy bags by home visitors.
