Provision of Services to Handicapped Infants and Toddlers with Developmental Delay: The Health Perspective on Resources. Short Report.
Fullagar, Patricia; And Others
This paper discusses resources needed by infants and toddlers who are disabled and by their families, with respect to policy implementation of Part H of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The paper emerged from a series of focus group discussions with health professionals in five states. Out of the open-ended discussions emerged several themes, including: medical requirements of the children in addition to treatment of developmental delays; identification of professional human resources; programmatic resources for treatment and evaluation; and structural resources such as insurance coverage and transportation. Policy strategies are suggested in the areas of resource distribution, multidisciplinary cooperation and communication, and financial support. (7 references) (JDD)
