The University of California Mind Institute is recruiting research participants for a study that will examine early intervention services, how families and providers use early intervention strategies, parent satisfaction and how well the services work for families and children. The study will evaluate English and Spanish speaking children (families) age 12- 30 months at the time of enrollment who are receiving early intervention services. Participation in the study will not affect current early intervention services and will include completing questionnaires, assessments and observations or recordings of early intervention interactions.
This type of research is exiting and important for so many reasons. First, and foremost it provides the opportunity to learn more about and build on the benefits of early intervention on child and family development. Second, research is essential to developing evidence-based practices and providing a way to accurately measure the outcomes of various interventions. Finally, FUNDING OF SERVICES! When we advocate for services and funding early intervention services policymakers want data so the more research and data we have the better off we are in our advocacy efforts.
