provides Specialized Skills Training services and case management to children who qualify for ECI with developmental delays or disabilities. Services are provided in the natural environment (e.g. home, daycare, community-settings, telehealth).
Essential tasks include participation as a member of an interdisciplinary team to evaluate, assess, determine eligibility, develop and carry out treatment plans, document progress, educate families and community partners, collaborate with physicians and other care providers, maintain required records, and meet requirement of the profession of Early Intervention Specialist.
This position also provides Targeted Case Management/Case Management services to children and families enrolled in Early Childhood Intervention Services. Essential tasks include assessing needs and overseeing the coordination of the family’s access to resources. This position also ensures the family’s understanding of rights and advocacy.
All interactions with families and children use Trauma Informed Care principles. Services are provided using the Coaching Model. The Coaching Model provides strategies and interventions, educational information, material, and emotional support to families while allowing families to have a voice and choice in the services. Parent choice and voice allows the parents to engage their child so the child can learn throughout the day in a variety of typical activities, and to support the attachment between the child and parent or primary caregiver. Services are provided in the setting where the child lives, learns, and plays.
Requirements of early intervention service provision come under the authority of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and are regulated by the Texas Department
