In 1986, the new law PL 99-457 establishes Part C and mandates Part B, Section 619 of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). This legislation creates the Infant and Toddlers with Disabilities Program, provides new funding for children with disabilities from birth through age two, and incentivizes states to make services available at age three years.

To help professionals working in the emerging field of early intervention, we publish groundbreaking curricula like the Carolina Curriculum, AEPS®, and the play-based TPBA/I, plus influential early books like Guralnick’s Effectiveness of Early Intervention and Odom & Karnes’s Early Intervention for Infants and Children with Handicaps. We work with forward-thinking experts focused on authentic assessment in natural environments.
