Trans-disciplinary team

This service is available to children who are determined eligible for Early Intervention services due to having a qualifying medical diagnosis or due to experiencing developmental delays. This approach recognizes that you are your child’s first and most important teacher. You will be supported by a team of professionals, which may include a developmental specialist, physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech therapist, social worker, infant massage educator, Early Intervention assistant and PLAY Project consultant. Each of these team members has extensive knowledge of infant-toddler development. One member of the team will be assigned as your primary service provider (PSP), who will serve as the liaison between your family and the rest of the team.

Your PSP will offer regular visits at your home, daycare or other community settings most appropriate to meet your goals. Your PSP will show you how to use everyday routines and preferred activities to foster your child’s development and to expand your child’s opportunities for learning throughout the day. This person will share information obtained from the visits with the remainder of the team and will bring recommendations from the team members back to your family. When necessary, other team members may accompany the PSP on visits to offer you suggestions directly.
