Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1993 
75 p. 

Project TIE (Teams in Early Intervention) was conceptualized to meet the need for: (1) involvement of formerly "ancillary" service professionals in early intervention for children with disabilities, (2) high quality family-centered services, and (3) training in the team approach. The project provides training to four groups that might constitute an early intervention team--speech/language pathologists, motor therapists, health care professionals, and family members. The training is designed to enable participants to determine what supports and interferes with children's performance, develop shared perspectives in viewing children's performance, apply a common conceptual framework for early intervention, explore how each profession addresses early intervention team practices, know what other team members expect from them, and improve information sharing among team members. This introductory training module contains a paper by Carol Westby titled "Developing Cultural Competence: Working with Culturally/Linguistically Diverse Families." The paper examines controversial issues in cultural diversity, cultural variations in values and beliefs, cultural differences affecting child development, and cultural influences on interviewing. Another paper, "The Performance Competence Model: A Narrative Discussion" by Meave Stevens Dominguez, promotes a holistic view of the child within the context of the child's personal characteristics, preferences, environments, family, and culture. Appendices contain a sample training agenda and cards for use in a performance competence game. (Contains approximately 120 references.) (JDD)
