The Goal
To develop, evaluate, and disseminate methods for improving access to Early Intervention Services, which are provided under Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

Objective One: Describe the current ways infants and toddlers are identified, assessed and enrolled in Early Intervention Services (i.e. Child Find) and evaluate the equity, effectiveness, friendliness and efficiency of Child Find.

Objective Two: Identify/develop, pilot, revise, demonstrate and evaluate innovative strategies to improve Child Find, based on evaluation findings.

SEEK is unique in its comprehensive research design, which includes measurements in comparison as well as intervention communities to examine the effectiveness of project strategies.
is also unusual in data-based targeting of specific weaknesses in Primary Care Provider (PCP) awareness, attitudes, and skills.
