Abstract

Professionals in pediatric practice encounter infants and toddlers with developmental delays, disabilities, or complex chronic health conditions eligible for Part C early intervention (EI) services. The most frequently identified concern by families is communication emphasizing the importance of the role of the speech language pathologist (SLP). This article provides a conceptual framework for SLP services in early intervention, based on the principles of interprofessional collaboration. The history of collaboration, EI, and the role of SLPs as members of the EI team are summarized. The competencies mandated for interprofessional education and practice are juxtaposed with the principles of EI and guidelines for SLPs.
