This elective session is focused on the provision of occupational therapy services under Part C of federal education legislation, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004. The course reviews current regulatory influences on early intervention along with recommended practices for working with families and their infants and toddlers. In addition, this session defines and emphasizes the significance of young children's learning in natural environments and highlights the application of family-centered approaches in early intervention. Research evidence related to specific topics is included in concise summaries throughout the session. Content is relevant to occupational therapists who have experience in early intervention and need to stay updated about how the 2004 reauthorization of IDEA and emerging promising practices impact their work with families. The session includes additional recommendations and resources for self-study to meet the needs of therapists who are new to early intervention practice. These optional activities are designed to help learners increase knowledge and develop their competence in working with families and their very young children.
