Question: We have a supervisor who wants to see the research that better outcomes are occurring for children with using this method of service delivery (referring to my routines-based early intervention in natural environments).
Answer: I would like to see the research that better outcomes are occurring for children who get the current method of service delivery.
One might argue that the change model should produce the evidence. That the onus isn't on the homeostatic model but on the one requiring effort and psychological unrest. Another way of looking at this we learned a long time ago with respect to the research basis for inclusion. The model with the backing of theory, rational thought, and moral certainty does not have the onus of proof. The atheoretical, irrational, and morally questionable (i.e., not empowering families and other caregivers adequately) model has the onus of proof.
