AJOT cover

Assistant professor of clinical occupational Karrie Kingsley OTD ‘07, MA ‘01 and alumna Zoe Mailloux OTD ‘12, MA ‘81, BS ‘77 have published the article “Evidence for Effectiveness of Different Service Delivery Models in Early Intervention Services” in the July/August 2013 issue of the American Journal of Occupational Therapy.

The authors reviewed evidence for the effectiveness of various early intervention service delivery models as well as methods to improve occupational performance for children and families receiving early intervention services. Common themes of family-centered and routine-based approaches, service setting, and the inclusion of parent participation and training emerged. While families consistently reported positive perceptions of family-centered and routine-based approaches, and parent participation and training resulted in positive outcomes, no specific setting or method of service delivery was identified as most effective, with most studies reporting combined approaches and environments for interventions.
