Aligned with DEC recommended practices and CEC standards!

A must for future early interventionists, this introductory text prepares professionals to support infants and toddlers with special needs and their families—and address the OSEP child outcomes so critical to a program’s success. Focusing on the specific needs and challenges of children from birth to three, the book gathers more than a dozen expert contributors with proven expertise in helping children who have or are at risk for developmental delays. Early interventionists will learn recommended practices for family-centered, evidence-based intervention and team collaboration, knowledge they’ll use for the rest of their careers to ensure the best possible outcomes for infants and young children. (Also great for in-service professional development!)

LEARN THE FOUNDATIONS OF:

  • addressing the three OSEP Child Outcome Indicators: positive social-emotional skills, acquisition and use of knowledge and skills, and using appropriate behaviors to meet needs
  • developing and implementing IFSPs
  • weaving intervention services into a family’s established routines
  • empowering parents to successfully guide and support their child’s development
  • conducting interventions that support motor, cognitive, social-emotional, communication, and adaptive skills
  • making the most of natural learning opportunities in natural environments
  • working in effective teams with professionals from diverse disciplines
  • meeting the specific needs of children with all disabilities and/or risk areas, including autism, sensory disabilities, and cognitive and/or motor disabilities

STUDENT-FRIENDLY FEATURES: “Best Practice Highlights” with specific intervention suggestions, helpful discussion questions, case studies in each chapter that illustrate the recommended strategies.
