Early Intervention Services for Children with Developmental Disabilities

Literature Review of Early Intervention Services for Children with Developmental Disabilities

Students will produce a review of the current literature pertaining to early intervention services for children under the age of 3 years.  The review of literature should be conducted in the context of development and the characteristics of children with various disabilities.  You may focus on all developmental disabilities in general or just one in particular.  However, note that whichever you choose to do must remain consistent for all proceeding assignments.  Specific examples for particular disabilities are encouraged if choosing to complete a “general” assignment.

Be sure to include the following:

  • Definition/description of early intervention (see Odom, Horner, Snell, & Blancher, Handbook of developmental disabilities, Chapters 8-11.)

  • Explanation of Infant and Toddlers with Disabilities services in the context of disabilities and IDEA (Part C) (see Hanson & Lynch, Understanding Familiespages 107-110).

  • What is the purpose of early intervention?

  • What are the laws associated with early intervention?

  • What is an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) and how can a family go about getting one?

  • Merits of early intervention.

  • Challenges associated with early intervention.

  • Resources available to parents/families to assist them with the process.

  • One reflection page (at the end of the literature review) including how the information researched and obtained will assist them in their current or future work in the field.  Students should provide at least one real-world example and/or case study to exemplify how the information will be utilized.

 

A 6 page paper, not including title page and reference section, is required. Students should select at least 6 articles from peer-reviewed journals (e.g., Journal of Autism and Developmental Disabilities) to be included in the paper (DO NOT include articles found on the internet). The articles referenced by the student in the paper should be listed in the Reference section at the end of the paper. Course materials (readings from books and journals) along with government material (laws governing the services) should also be incorporated in the paper and cited appropriately. The student should also address at the end of the paper how the information researched and obtained will assist them in their current or future work in the field. The Reference section should be in APA format.
