Abstract

This paper folio examines current offerings on early intervention with developmentally delayed preschoolers, giving emphasis to delivering services and supports directly to parents and children in their own homes. This work is deemed important because not all children develop their skills and competencies at the same rate as their same aged peers and it is the task of others to encourage their development and to minimize any developmental lags. -- The first paper in this folio, "A Perspective on the Need for Early Interventions with Developmentally Delayed Young Children," provides an overview of the conceptual issues and intervention approaches offered in current literature. -- Paper two of this folio, "Toward the Most Appropriate Practices for Intervening with Developmentally Delayed Young Children and Their Families," utilizes the critical dimensions of early intervention derived in paper one to examine two major documents offered as useful in designing and evaluating programs for young children at national and regional levels. -- Finally, paper three of this folio examines a regional approach to early intervention with developmentally delayed young children.
