Abstract

A random sample of 967 early intervention providers in 33 different states completed a telephone survey that was conducted with computer-assisted telephone interview technology. The survey solicited information about the service providers' views of assistive technology (AT) for infants and toddlers with disabilities. In particular, questions elicited information regarding the use of AT, factors important to making decisions about AT, access to resources (e.g., funding, lending libraries), and provider training about AT in early intervention. Data were analyzed for the group as a whole, for specific disciplines, and in terms of the amount of training providers reported they had about AT in early intervention. Results indicated similar response patterns across disciplines, but differences in terms of reported training.
