Training List

Newborn Behavioral Observation

Event Description

CEU applications pending for PT, OT, SW

The Newborn Behavioral Observation system (NBO) is an infant-focused, family-centered relationship-based tool, designed to sensitize parents to their baby's competencies and individuality, in order to foster positive parent-infant interactions and thus contribute to the development of a positive parent-infant relationship from the very beginning (Nugent, Keefer, Minear, Johnson & Blanchard, 2007).

In this two-day training, you will learn how to administer the tool through discussion, video and live example and hands-on practice using an infant doll. Please bring a doll with you to the training. You will also receive information about how to become a certified NBO practitioner.

This training is open to service providers working in Ohio’s Part C early intervention. You must meet the following in order to participate:

  • Trainee must be a member of an IFSP team serving infants, toddlers and their families
  • Trainee must be a DS or therapist (interventionists/assessor)
  • Trainee must commit to obtaining certification following training and using the information learned in the training when assessing and providing interventions via the IFSP
