Coordinating Care Between Early Intervention and the Primary Care Medical Home: National Training

Posted on: August 16, 2011

ICAAP is proud to announce a new web-based training, “Coordinating Care between Early Intervention and the Primary Care Medical Home.”

This resource is intended for a national audience of Early Interventionists and others who work with the Individuals with Disabilities Act, Part C or provide services for infants and toddlers. The presentation is broken down into two 20 minute modules. Its goals are to improve the delivery and financing of preventive health and developmental services for children birth to three and to build on existing programs to develop a range of strategies for primary care settings.

  • Part 1 objectives are to understand the “medical home” concept, to understand the role and practice environment of primary care providers (or PCPs), and to identify challenges PCPs face in working with the EI system.
  • Part 2 will summarize the focus of Early Intervention and primary care which may help build on the objective to identify challenges PCPs face with EI Systems that was introduced in Part 1. This module will also provide information on the remaining two objectives which are to learn about complementary training provided to PCPs and take steps to facilitate communication and care coordination with PCPs.

This project was supported by a grant from The Commonwealth Fund.
