New York State Department of Health (DOH) Early Intervention Program initiated a multi-year effort in 1996 to develop clinical practice guidelines to support the efforts of the statewide Early Intervention Program. The first two target areas were autism and communication. Next came Down syndrome and motor disabilities. Most recently, panels have developed separate guidelines for vision and hearing.
This focus is on autism to tie in with the theme in this newsletter of Division 2. The guidelines were developed by a panel that included parents and professionals from a variety of disciplines across the state. As stated in the preface of the Quick Reference Guide, the guidelines are not standards, nor are they policies. The guidelines are a tool to help ensure that infants and young children with disabilities receive early intervention services consistent with their individual needs and resources, priorities, and concerns of their families.
