Özet

The purpose of the study was to review an Early Intervention System for young children with developmental disabilities and their families. The researchers focused on overall implementation of the system in the U. S. and then focused on Georgia. They then used this model to suggest an Early Intervention System specific to Turkey. In this qualitative study, document investigation was used as the tool for data collection. Guralnick's (2008) basic principles of early intervention systems were used as the criteria for the analyses of program standards. Recommendations focus on the early intervention program, early screening and diagnosis, personnel for early intervention, and an early intervention management system.
