"Dosage" Decisions for Early Intervention Services
Kuhn, Miriam; Marvin, Christine A.
Young Exceptional Children, v19 n4 p20-34 Dec 2016
Part C of the Individuals With Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA) of 2004 requires early intervention teams craft individualized and effective plans to meet the needs of young children with special needs and their families (Küpper, 2012). Many early intervention teams, however, may struggle to follow a process that results in systematically meeting the spirit of IDEA Part C or these recommended practices for families of children with special needs (McWilliam, 2010). This article describes a process to help early intervention teams consider key factors in the design of a program's focus and the type and intensity of supports appropriate for young children and their families. Relevant DEC Recommended Practices are noted as support for the questions the team should consider in this decision-making process.
