A History of EI/ECSE in the United States: A Personal Perspective
by Diane Bricker, Huichao Xie, Sharon Bohjanen
Bricker et al (2018) wrote: "service delivery has been predominately a “patchwork” of separate and nonaffiliated offerings across communities" (p. 12).
Questions to think about:
- Does this "patchwork" of separate/fragmented services ring true in your EI community? What have some of your experiences and challenges been like?
- What needs to change? What are your ideas for implementing coordinated, comprehensive, and cohesive services for young children and families?
- What can YOU do as an EI practitioner or program to move towards more cohesive services?
