Abstract

Utah's commitment to the health and development of infants and toddlers with disabilities has been the foundation for the implementation of health services in the state's early intervention programs. A curriculum designed to integrate health services into Utah's Part H (now Part C) programs was developed and tested in 1993. Since then, the Health Services Integration Curriculum (HSIC) has been delivered statewide to staff as part of Utah's Comprehensive System of Personnel Development Plan. A model published earlier by one author was updated and provided the conceptual framework for much of the HSIC content. An agenda, content, and teaching methods used are discussed, and evaluation data from the pilot testing are presented.
