This project will increase the number of occupational therapy and physical therapy graduates who are highly qualified, through evidence-based practice and research, to provide service in the area of early intervention and related services for children with disabilities. The program will offer an interdisciplinary (entry-level) preparation in occupational therapy and physical therapy. Thirty preservice occupational therapy and physical therapy students will be recruited during their first year of study, and will take additional coursework beyond the required entry-level curriculum focusing on children with disabilities and their families. Two of the additional courses will focus on children with disabilities from diverse cultural and language backgrounds, and supporting children and youth on the autism spectrum. Several courses will have Web-based components in order to provide flexibility for students. Students will also participate in two fieldwork experiences in early intervention and school-based settings.
