Teaming with Technology Research Project, September 30, 2000-June 30, 2001. Final Project Report.
Heinlein, Ken B.
This final report presents findings of a Wyoming research project designed to test the possibility of using interactive technology in the assessment, at a distance, of infants and toddlers in rural or frontier areas. The project compared the quality of reports developed when a transdisciplinary assessment team conducted assessments either in person or utilized interactive technology at a distance. Evaluation of reports was in terms of their value to the child's parents, to the professionals developing the Individual Education Plan or Individual Family Service Plan, and to those conducting the developmental interventions. The project found no detectable difference in the quality of assessment reports between on-site and distance assessments. Three papers resulting from the project are also included. They are: (1) "Teaming with Technology: Utilizing Interactive Technology To Conduct Distance Assessments in a Frontier State" (Christy L. Thomson, Michelle L. Buchanan, Kenneth B. Heinlein, and Laura L. Westlake); (2) "Utilizing Interactive Technology To Conduct Team Assessments" (Christy L. Thompson, Laura L. Westlake, and Michelle L. Buchanan); and (3) "The Role of the Nurse on a Transdisciplinary Early Intervention Assessment Team" (Mary Beth Stepans, Christy L. Thompson, Michelle L. Buchanan, and others). (Individual papers contain references.) (DB)
