The Early Intervention Guidebook provides evaluates the evidence for the overarching framework of early intervention for all children and families, situated within the family-professional partnership. A practical synthesis of theories, research, and policies the book is structured around concepts and, when appropriate, policy, rather than specific processes. These include: child learning and development, family systems and resources, contextual learning, early intervention as a support not a substitute, coordinated systems, and future-oriented thinking.These concepts are linked to specific early intervention processes, such as evaluation and assessment, program planning, intervention implementation, service coordination, and transition which are infused across chapters. Examples used throughout the book represent a diversity of families, disciplines, child characteristics, and contextual situations. At the end of every chapter is a checklist that readers can use to reflect what is currently happening in early intervention and compare it to the applications described in the book.
