Challenge

Medically Fragile infants lack the Early Intervention development that is necessary for proper brain development. Training is needed to provide the necessary intervention skills to the nurses fostering these infants in their homes. Our goal is to provide online Early Intervention classes and support to our Nurse-Foster Providers and all families through-out the United States.

Solution

This project will offer Early Intervention support to help train the nurses caring for the medically fragile infants in their homes. Continuation of educational support will be given to all children served.

Long-Term Impact

Today, 1 in 45 (CDC 1-68) individuals are diagnosed with autism making it more common than pediatric cancer, diabetes, and AIDS combined. Early Intervention training and implementation is needed and the key to reducing the intrenched behaviors seen in our autism foster care population. On-line Early Intervention Courses for our nurses is warranted to mitigate behaviors and symptoms before they become intrenched in behavioral patterns noted in foster care children on the autism spectrum.
