This book presents an amalgam of early intervention ideas from the fields of education, occupational therapy, and physical therapy for children with developmental delays. An introductory chapter describes the approach's three theoretical bases: neurodevelopmental treatment (NDT), sensory integration, and Piagetian theory. Chapter 1 considers assessment, including determination of eligibility, screening, diagnosis, evaluation for program planning, and program evaluation. NDT program components are reviewed in Chapter 2, including positioning, handling, and facilitating movement. Chapter 3 considers sensory integration program components including tactile, vestibular, and proprioceptive activities. Piagetian program components such as play and cognitive content are described in the fourth chapter, covering object permanence, means-ends and cause-effect, gestural and vocal imitation, and spatial relationships. Chapter 5 presents speech-language program components including feeding, speech production, auditory responsiveness, communication, and augmentative communication. Chapter 6 offers guidelines for integrating program components, with sections on the team model, team members, services delivered by the transdisciplinary team, in-service programs, incorporating therapy in the classroom, and development of individualized programs. Four appendixes list assessment and instructional resources. A glossary and a bibliography of 120 items are also included.
