Relationship between Service Coordinator Practices and Early Intervention Services
Bruder, Mary Beth; Dunst, Carl J.
Journal of the American Academy of Special Education Professionals, p16-29 Fall 2007
The influence of six service coordination variables on the number, types, and intensity of early intervention services was examined in a study of 346 IDEA Part C program participants in 46 states. The study and selection of the predictor and criterion variables was guided by both previous research and current beliefs about the role service coordination plays in influencing the type, frequency, and amount of early intervention services. Results showed that only the number of persons developing children's IFSPs and how long service coordinators worked with families were related to the early intervention services measures. Findings are discussed in terms of the disassociation between service coordination and the provision of early intervention services.
