An interdisciplinary approach to health literacy for education, research, and practice in early childhood intervention Perspectives on Language, Learning, and Education, 18(2), 62-67. doi: 10.1044/lle18.2.62




“Health literacy” is gaining attention among professionals that serve young children with disabilities and their families. Given that parental health literacy might influence developmental outcomes for a child in early intervention, an interdisciplinary focus on health literacy in early intervention is important to consider. This article presents information on health literacy and the relevance to early childhood intervention. The authors summarize three interdisciplinary studies pertaining to health literacy and early intervention and discuss implications for clinical professionals.
