Strong working relationships with diverse families and children are the foundation of successful early intervention. Discover fresh, practical ways to build these relationships in this essential guidebook, every professional¿s blueprint for working with children and families within the specific context of their culture, family structure, and risk factors. Developed by a special education expert and a pediatrician, this book is a must for all professionals serving families of children birth to age 8 who have disabilities or who may be at risk. Presenting a clear framework for effective relationship-centered care in natural environments, this book gives readers the up-to-date information and guidance they need to meet AAP guidelines and IDEA requirements for family-centered care, and address the new OSEP requirement that programs report how early intervention services have helped families and children; respond appropriately to the different types of family diversity they¿ll encounter; enhance their current models for early intervention in natural environments; and improve teamwork and communication. With dozens of engaging photos, case studies, anecdotes from parents and professionals, and a helpful list of resources for working with at-risk families, readers will get vivid insights that will help them to put relationship-centered care into practice. This book is the ultimate guide to relationship-centered care and a must have for every early childhood professional working within today¿s changing family landscape.
