Materials for Use by Faculty Who Teach about Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities.
Capone, A.; And Others
This collection of materials was gathered as part of a project to develop and implement a faculty training institute for early intervention personnel in 12 states in the Northeast. The project's emphasis was to train interdisciplinary faculty to infuse basic early intervention content into existing course work, develop new course work or modify existing course work to include early intervention issues, and provide periodic inservice training. Introductory material describes the NorthEast Early Intervention Faculty Training Institute project, discusses the project's importance, and reports on its impact. Among the types of materials included in this collection are outlines, annotated bibliographies, materials for handouts or transparencies, lists of course objectives, essays providing background information, lesson plans, suggestions for learning activities, case studies, and resource lists. Set 1, titled "Services for Families," contains two modules on family-centered practices. Set 2, "Services for Infants and Toddlers," contains modules which emphasize the use of activity-based approaches, natural environments, and assessment for early intervention. Set 3, "Systems Support in Early Intervention," contains modules on teams and teaming, related laws, collaboration, and collaborative consultation. (DB)
