GURALNICK, Michael J.. Merging Policy Initiatives and Developmental Perspectives in Early Intervention. Escritos de Psicología [online]. 2015, vol.8, n.2, pp.6-13. ISSN 1989-3809.

The provision of early intervention services for vulnerable children and their families is now both accepted and expected by the international community. This article considers the importance of a developmental perspective as an essential guide to early intervention service systems. Emphasized in this framework are three critical features: relationship formation, the continuity of interventions, and the comprehensiveness of interventions. Guidance to early intervention systems design with respect to structural and values principles is also discussed. Future advances in early intervention may well depend upon the merging of these perspectives to create policy initiatives to enhance early intervention systems.

Keywords : Early Intervention; Policy; Developmental Perspectives.
