Welcome to Relocated Blog

This blog addresses issues about the provision of early intervention supports for infants and toddlers with disabilities and their families. The posts will deal with methods for implementing early intervention in a family-centered, normalizing, and evidence-based manner. You can read about the model at www.VanderbiltChildrens.com/earlyintervention. This blog takes off where an initial one, at www.earlyintervention.blogsource.com left off; that blogging service is shutting down.

I find the posts very intersting and reassuring that my thoughts about Part C service delivery are the same as in the posts.

I have a question about peer reviewed research, etc. Where is literature/research about recommended frequency and intensity of IFSP services?

I see anything from 45 minutes to 90 minutes. I do not read any documentation justifying 75 minutes, 90 minutes. there are times a family will have a visit every day by someone different. Or everyone comes on the same day back to back.

When I question a team about the number of Part C services invariably it is "that is what the family wanted" The more information from different people the better.

Any talking points, suggestions, would be appreciated. I believe we are not correctly framing the question about who will provide the Part C service,frequency and intensity.

Thank you
