"Providing services to families of children with special needs who are at risk for or demonstrating developmental delays is at the core of effective early intervention. Practical Strategies for Family-centered Early Intervention provides a basic philosophical grounding that addresses a family-centered approach to service delivery; a view of the family as the unit of service delivery, recognizing its strengths, values, and lifestyle, responding to its priorities, and individualizing services; and a detailed exploration into the principles and rationale of the family-centered approach to early intervention and application of these principles to service delivery." "A valuable and useful guide for exploration and transition in this important area, this book reflects, in a down-to-earth format, the need for embracing the family in the directed development of the disabled child."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
