Application of Best Practices in Early Intervention 2018
Salina Regional Health Center Infant-Child Development Program is recognized for the application of best practice in utilization of a focus book study as a strategy for staff professional development. This activity supported the development of both knowledge and skills of staff which were then transferred to practice in the implementation of the primary service provider approach. The local leadership team conducted joint visit to ensure application of new practices. This program thoughtfully implemented the book study, referenced their study to the DEC Recommended Practices, set ground rules for the implementation of the study, and developed specific plans for implementation in their practice with children and families.

TARC tiny-k Program is recognized for the application of best practice in the design, fabrication, and assembly of seating systems for children. The utilization of the Adaptive Designs approach to cardboard seating systems provides an efficient and cost effect approach to seating challenges. The thought of cardboard seating systems may seem strange, however when done appropriately is safe, strong, stable, and can be made kid friendly and attractive. This approach allows the tiny-k program to be flexible in using easily accessible materials to design and adapt seating. This also allows the adaptation of existing seating in the child’s home.
