A paradigm shift in ECI – challenges and building bridges in Serbia

Snezana Ilic

ECI Model, tailored explicitly for Serbia, has opened the following dilemmas:

  • Which strategies are effective for changing the current, rehabilitation-based intervention model, and for strengthening the role of parents as lead “interventionists” for their children?
  • Can we talk in the same Family-centered early intervention language?
  • Can we support highly trained professionals to utilize their expertise through a transdisciplinary service delivery model?
