The second model program developed at the SKI-HI Institute was INSITE (IN-home Sensory Impaired Training and Education). The INSITE program offers home-based support and resources for families with infants, toddlers and pre-schoolers, age birth to five, with sensory impairments and additional disabilities (MDSI). Today more than 5,000 children in 30 states are served by early interventionists who have received INSITE training and use the materials.
The INSITE resource manual contains information and activities for families on early communication, vision, hearing, motor, daily care, and cognition/play. Additional information on gathering data for the IFSP, child assessment, program planning, family issues, and psychoemotional support for families is included in the manual.
Training and technical assistance are available for those interested in implementing INSITE. Contact Elizabeth Dennison, (435) 797-5593, for more information about INSITE.
