Von Rembow D, Sciarillo W, eds. 1993. Nurses, physicians, psychologists, and social workers within statewide early intervention systems: Clarifying roles under Part H of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Bethesda, MD: Association for the Care of Children's Health, 59 pp.

Annotation: This publication consists of papers defining certain discipline-specific roles in the early intervention system under Part H of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), including those of nurses, physicians, psychologists, and social workers. These resource papers include sections related to child find, evaluation and assessment, Individualized Family Service Plan, early intervention services, and service coordination. The papers addressing the role of the nurse and the papers discussing the role of the physician differentiate between medical, nursing, and health services. Although the papers were developed to assist Maryland's local jurisdictions in implementing the statewide early intervention system consistent with federal and state regulations, they provide both a general framework and specific guidance relevant to other areas' early intervention efforts.
