Project Collaborative Care: How Child Care and Early Intervention Providers Support Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities in Child Care
The purpose of this project is to begin to understand the needs of infants and toddlers with disabilities and their families in child care settings. As the number of infants in child care rapidly increases as does the number of children in need of early intervention services provided in natural settings, this study addresses the needs of this particular group to best align with recommended practices and policies. Specifically, this project examines the experiences of early childhood professionals in child care and early intervention with infants and toddlers with disabilities in child care settings and professional collaboration related to these services. In cooperation with state agencies in child care and early intervention, this project aims to investigate the factors that promote and hinder services for very young children with disabilities in child care.
