Collaboration with IDEA Part C projects – which focus on early intervention services for infants and toddlers with disabilities – is a theme throughout a number of small group sessions at the conference. These sessions will aim to motivate discussion on how to be creative with collaboration within and beyond OSEP in order to best serve students with disabilities from the earliest stages of learning.   Collaboration in Intervention Implementation
  •  An example of current collaboration between Part D and Part C projects is the Center for Promoting Language and Literacy Readiness in Early Childhood at the University of Kansas. Dale Walker, the project’s Principal Investigator, will present a breakout session on Models of Research Collaboration with Part C Providers and Parents to Implement Naturalistic Communication Interventions with Fidelity. The discussion will address how early educators measure the fidelity of intervention implementation to document what is being delivered and how it impacts child and family outcomes. The session is scheduled for 8:30-9:30am on Wednesday
 Collaboration in Identification
  • Jay Gense, Director of the National Consortium for Deaf-Blindness, will lead a small breakout entitled Using Evidence-based Strategies and Technical Assistance to Improve Identification of Infants and Toddlers with Combined Vision and Hearing Loss. The presenters will discuss how a national center for deaf-blindness might collaborate more closely with other programs to develop identification and referral guidelines/protocols to offer to State and national systems that provide services to children birth through two and their families. The session is scheduled for 9:45-10:45am on Wednesday.
