Changing Perspectives in Early Intervention for Children with Disabilities in Sweden.
Bjorck-Akesson, Eva; Granlund, Mats
Infants and Young Children, v9 n3 p56-68 Jan 1997
This article describes early intervention services provided to families with infants and young children with disabilities in Sweden. The "habilitation model" is based on medical, educational, psychological, and social perspectives placed in a family context. Government legislation stresses intervention focused on the handicapping consequences of the child's disability and family involvement in planning and implementing interventions. (Author/DB)
