What ways can an early childhood special education birth to three team effectively utilize a transdisciplinary team approach?
The motivating factor for my capstone was influenced by the shift from child-centered practices to family-centered practices in early intervention. Developing a collaborative relationship with parents and caregivers is the key to a successful early intervention. Recommended practices support the use of a transdisciplinary team approach. Primary influences in my research include R. McWilliam, V. Buysse, and P. Wesley. To discover answers to my capstone question an extensive literature review was done, interviews were conducted and a survey was sent to ECSE specialists using a transdisciplinary team approach. Networking with ECSE specialists and the willingness of consultants to relinquish their role to a primary service provider are a few of the elements needed to effectively utilize a transdisciplinary team approach.
