Speech/Language Pathology Module. Teams in Early Intervention.
Laurel, Marci; Westby, Carol
Project TIE (Teams in Early Intervention) was conceptualized to meet the need for: (1) involvement of formerly "ancillary" service professionals in early intervention for children with disabilities, (2) high quality family-centered services, and (3) training in the team approach. The project provides training to four groups that might constitute an early intervention team--speech/language pathologists, motor therapists, health care professionals, and family members. This training module on speech/language pathology examines reasons for consulting with speech/language pathologists; outlines a framework for effective communication; reviews what can be expected from a speech/language pathologist; and explores relationships with other expert groups (families, occupational/physical therapists, and health care professionals). A mechanism is presented for determining what other team members want from speech/language pathologists and for applying the expertise of speech/language pathologists to the Performance Competence Model to understand how children interact with their environment. Several overheads and handouts are appended. (JDD)
