This course examines the changing paradigms of service delivery in early intervention and special education for young children experiencing disability and diversity in development and their families. Inclusive models of service delivery are explored including collaborative and consultative models currently in use in infant development programs, regulated child care and early primary classrooms. Students consider educational change processes, consultation skills, public policy, interdisciplinary team collaborations, and teaching strategies in inclusive classrooms.
