Summary:

This guide is designed to be used for family-centered early intervention training in inservice teacher education programs, preservice teacher education programs, and parent groups. Modules are provided that are based on the positive outcomes from the Family-Centered Interdisciplinary Training Project in Early Intervention, a project designed to meet a critical need for early intervention personnel by providing interdisciplinary preservice training to prepare professionals to serve infants, toddlers, and preschool children with disabilities and their families. The five modules stress the involvement of families in all aspects of the training program, a curricular focus on family and professional partnerships, and practical experiences designed to teach optimal interdisciplinary team functions. The modules contain the following: (a) an overview of the purpose and design of the seminar component of the Interdisciplinary training project; (b) an overview of the trainee small group team experiences; (c) information about the family mentor experience within the interdisciplinary training project; (d) a community program practicum component; and (e) an overview of how trainee supervision is threaded throughout the interdisciplinary training project. Each module contains service Learning Tools that provide step-by-step suggestions on how to cover a particular content area. Handouts and overheads are also provided.
