Can Embedding Prompts in the IFSP Form Improve the Quality of IFSPs Developed?
Jung, Lee Ann
Journal of Early Intervention, v32 n3 p200-213 Jun 2010
The purpose of this study was to determine in what ways the quality of plans developed by individualized family service plan (IFSP) teams changed following targeted revisions to the IFSP form and instruction manual. IFSPs were collected from 94 family service coordinators, one IFSP from each before and one from each after the form revision. The revision included adding written prompts to the IFSP form and manual targeting three areas: (a) recording family routines; (b) recording families' priorities for emotional, material, and informational support; and (c) connecting routines and priorities to outcomes and procedures. Results of multivariate analyses of variance for repeated measures indicated that the quality of IFSPs improved after document revision. Follow-up univariate tests showed statistically significant improvement in 7 of 12 indicators of IFSP quality. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
