I398 – Prevention/Early Intervention Methods II
1.5 Credit Hours
Building upon a relationship-based philosophy, this course explores the principles, strategies, and interventions that underlie effective early intervention for infants and toddlers with or at risk for developmental delays or disabilities and their families. Students will examine current legislation, philosophy, policies, and practices associated with the early intervention system. Special attention will be given to family-centered practice, natural environments, trans-disciplinary services, culturally appropriate services, and evidence-based practice. Intervention strategies for enhancing the development of infants and toddlers with disabilities and supporting child and family outcomes will be examined. Emphasis will be placed on skill-building activities and planning interventions.
