Key Principles of Early Intervention and Effective Practices

A crosswalk with statements from discipline specific literature

From the introduction:

Many states have been evaluating their early intervention practices and undergoing system change to incorporate effective practices related to providing services within the natural environment, as well as implementing a primary service provider approach based on the family and child’s needs.

This document provides a crosswalk that illustrates effective early intervention practices and relevant statements from disciplines providing early intervention services.
