Early Intervention and Special Education in Connecticut: The Physician's Role.
Connecticut Univ. Health Center, Farmington.
This set of nine self-study manuals was developed as part of a project to enhance Connecticut pediatricians, pediatric residents, and medical students' understanding of and involvement with early intervention and the special education system. The training manuals cover the broad areas of philosophy, service delivery models, and collaborative relationships. Emphasized in each of the nine modules is the role of the family as the constant in the child's life and the primary unit for the delivery of services. The manuals cover the following topic areas: (1) family-centered care; (2) educational law; (3) research efficacy; (4) role of other disciplines; (5) curriculum development; (6) natural instructional environments; (7) service coordination; (8) team process; and (9) collaboration consultation. Each manual has four components: a discussion of concepts and values; a family study which provides a case study exercise; a discussion section allowing trainees to apply the concepts learned to the family case study; and the resolution, which suggests a hypothetical resolve which emphasizes physicians defining their roles and responsibilities.
