An Interdisciplinary Approach to Preparing Early Intervention Professionals: A University and Community Collaborative Initiative
The purpose of this article is to describe a university-community collaborative initiative that provided an interdisciplinary approach to personnel preparation. Twelve students from various academic disciplines participated in early intervention coursework and practical experiences. Specifically, students were prepared to provide early intervention to infants/toddlers who were premature/medically fragile and their families. Outcome measures indicated increased knowledge and acquisition of skills related to early intervention, and intervention specific to the high-risk population. Employment outcomes and increased opportunities for professional collaboration are also described. Implications are discussed.
