Abstract

Enhanced milieu teaching (EMT) is a naturalistic, conversation-based strategy for teaching language and communication skills to children in the early stages of language development (mean length of utterance [MLU] 1.0-3.5). More than 50 empirical studies have provided evidence for the efficacy and effectiveness of EMT for preschool children with significant cognitive and language delays; children with autism spectrum disorders; and children from high-risk, low-income families. EMT is a hybrid intervention based on three components: environmental arrangement, responsive interaction (RI), and milieu teaching (MT). Effective use of EMT requires high fidelity in the implementation of these three components and precise teaching of specific child targets. This chapter describes EMT procedures and their theoretical and empirical bases with a specific emphasis on parent-implemented applications.
