A trio of photos: first a white toddler with fluffy ginger curls lolls in an adult's arms; next a Black infant sits in a high chair, as a Black woman looks at him adoringly; finally an almond-skinned toddler with lofty brown curls stands in the arms of a Latina in her early thirties. The toddler looks offscreen wistfully as the woman stares at the toddler with love. Text: Vermont I-Team Early Intervention.

  • CDCI Connects: Talking About Better Intervention Strategies

    In this episode of the CDCI Connects podcast, renowned early intervention nurse / complex needs parent Rachel Wright joins Pamela Cummings, from the I-Team Early Intervention project.

    They cover Wright's journey from medical professional to mother, and specifically what she's learned from being the mother of three sons, one of whom is a child with disabilities and complex needs. What can other parents learn about negotiating the journey through the medical jargon maze? And how can medical professionals be better partners to parents and other family members?

    Pamela Cummings, M.Ed., PT, coordinates the Vermont I-Team Early Intervention project.

    The CDCI Connects podcast is a series of conversations about disability and inclusion, by and with people with disabilities, and their family members, educators, and medical professionals.

Funding

The I-Team Early Intervention Project receives funding support from the UVM Center on Disability & Community Inclusion, and the Vermont Child Health Improvement Program (VCHIP), through the University of Vermont Medical Center, as well as the Children's Integrated Services (CIS) project at the Vermont Department of Health.
