Abstract

Background and Purpose: The importance of early intervention has been explored in the literature, as has the importance of interdisciplinary care, but the combination of these two factors in developing an intervention plan for a complex child have not been fully explored.
Case Description: This case report followed a 19-month-old Caucasian male with hydrocephalus, a complex medical background, and compounding factors involving his parents to explore how his early intervention team’s involvement and communication allowed for improved outcomes and greater carry over between sessions.
Outcomes: This report utilized the PDMS-2 and observations from the different disciplines, including physical, occupational, speech, vision, nutrition, and developmental, to see improvements made over an 8-week period.
