SIG 1 Perspectives Vol. 18, No. 2, July 2011
This issue of Perspectives on Language Learning and Education discusses current issues related to early intervention (EI) assessment and treatment. The authors share varied approaches to working with families and present a discussion of collaborative efforts with Head Start teachers and children.
You will be able to:
- describe a transdisciplinary assessment team framework that effectively engages families in all aspects of the assessment process using person-centered planning strategies
- discuss definitions, address “myths” that are frequently identified as barriers to implementation, and offer strategies for SLPs serving as either consultative or primary providers on the EI team
- discuss the efficacy of an SLP-designed and implemented emergent literacy program for Head Start preschoolers and the influence of intensity of intervention on children’s gains
- discuss health literacy and the relevance to early childhood intervention
- describe interprofessional collaborative practice and how to use the International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) model
