Starting Out: From Diagnosis through Early Childhood

Involvement with service systems for individuals with developmental disabilities begins for some families when their children are infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. Families' experiences with early intervention and early childhood special education services set the tone for their participation with service systems throughout their children's age span. In this workshop, participants will be presented with an overview of New Jersey's Early Intervention and Early Childhood Special Education Systems, including the process of identification and referral, evaluation, program planning, delivery of services, and transition. The roles of social workers and the rights of families under each system will also be highlighted.

This workshop does not have any offerings for this semester.
