Cross-disciplinary Competencies: Serving the whole child

Traditionally, professionals have been trained in a single discipline usually corresponds to an area of development Additionally, most disciplines are trained to be able to offer services and intervene across a broad age range: the lifespan of an individual. Upon completion of a program of study in a discipline, an individual is then licensed in a discipline to provide services to persons across the lifespan. These training and licensing practices create two challenges to providing effective early childhood intervention to infants and young children and their families: 1) interventions may be focused to specific areas of development by discipline specific interventionists (e.g. an occupational therapist provides specific motor intervention and does not incorporate any other areas of development into her therapy/intervention); and 2) interventions may be provided by a person who does not have any specific experience or competence in infancy or early childhood

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is under-diagnosed and under-treated in young children, particularly in disadvantaged populations. Children from minority and low-income populations receive referral, diagnosis and treatment later and less often, and report having less information about how to obtain care, more problems obtaining care, and fewer support services to connect them to care. This webinar will provide an overview of the Screening and Linkage to Services for Autism (SaLSA) study, which aims to evaluate an autism patient navigator program for low income families with young children who screen positive for ASD. Preliminary results of the study, including individual and system barriers to obtaining screening, referral, early intervention evaluation and services will be described.
