Early intervention (EI) programs provide a critical service to children with developmental delays, yet communication between EI service providers, pediatricians, and caregivers remains suboptimal. We partnered with the NYC Department of Health to conduct a needs assessment to characterize communication and collaboration between caregivers, pediatricians, and EI service providers. Through a series of 24 in-depth interviews, we examined perspectives around barriers and facilitators to effective communication and collaboration.
