Latinx Families’ Experiences Navigating Early Intervention Services for Their Children with Developmental Delays
The first three years of a child’s life are of critical importance to the development of the brain. Children identified as not developing at a pace that is age level appropriate may be referred to early intervention services. This study identifies the successes as well as the various challenges that Latinx families encounter as they navigate the early intervention system. Through one-on-one interviews, the researchers in the current study explore the attitudes, values, and concerns of nine Latina mothers who accessed and received early intervention services for their children with developmental delays. Results from this study provide direction for the development of strategies and guidance for practitioners in the application of recommended practices.
