Who Is Providing EI Services?
In ASHA's 2011 SLP Health Care Survey ([PDF] see chart ), more than one-quarter (27 percent) of respondents indicated they provide early intervention services, defined as "services to children age birth to 3 under the direction of an individualized family service plan." SLPs in home health agencies were the most likely to provide early intervention services (63 percent), followed by those in outpatient clinics or offices (31 percent) and pediatric hospitals (29 percent).
In What Parts of the Country Are EI Services Provided Most?
The same survey indicated that across all health care settings, SLPs in the mid-Atlantic states (New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania) were the most likely to provide early intervention services (39 percent), followed by those in the south Atlantic states (Delaware, D.C., Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia) at 31 percent ([PDF] see map ).
