Description of Interactions between Young Children and Caregivers: The Context for Early Intervention

This chapter highlights the significance of interventions that promote interactions between caregivers and their young child who has a visual impairment and additional disabilities. First, the chapter discusses the key developmental needs of young children and the transactional model of development as a conceptual framework for guiding early intervention practice. Next, it draws on relevant research on child temperament, parent-child interactions, attachment, and contingency learning experiences and their implications for practice. Finally, the chapter draws on the implications of this research for intervention practices and suggests strategies that support interactions between caregiver and child.
