 About the Webinar

The Research over the past 50 years has yielded many promising early intervention approaches and techniques for children with developmental delays and disabilities. Yet virtually no systematic research has been conducted comparing the effects of different intervention intensities. In this presentation I will first review how treatment intensity has been defined, conceptualized and measured in the literature. I will then propose a set of terms and constructs borrowed from medicine that are intended to capture the dynamic aspects of this construct as an aid to clinical application and research. Key issues to employing the proposed approach in applied research, and clinical and educational practice will be discussed. There will be time for questions following the presentation.

Steven F. Warren received his Ph.D. in child and developmental psychology from the University of Kansas in 1977.  From 1982 through 1999 he served as a faculty member in the Departments of Special Education and Psychology at Peabody College, Vanderbilt University, in Nashville. While at Vanderbilt he served as the Director of the NICHD supported Mental Retardation Research Training Program from 1988 to 1999 and as Deputy Director of the John F. Kennedy Center for Research on Human Development from 1991 through 1999. In January 2000, Dr. Warren returned to the University Kansas to serve as the Director of the Schiefelbusch Institute for Life Span Studies and as Director of the NIH supported Kansas Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center. In March of 2008 he stepped down from these positions and assumed the role of Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Studies at KU.
