This DVD demonstrates the importance of parent-professional collaboration and of observations during typical home activities, how professionals view children's behaviors from their own discipline, and the need for families and service providers to understand other disciplines. The first segment follows Ryan, a child with cerebral palsy, and his mother as she encourages him in developmental activities such as raising his head and following moving objects, and as an interventionist works with him. Part Two focuses on Michael, a toddler with vision, hearing, movement, and other disabilities as he plays by himself, and as his parents and sibling play and work with him. For both sections, after the clip is shown with only comments from the parents, it is replayed with voiceover comments from five professionals in OT, PT, SLP, visual impairment, and deafness. The questions provided at the end of each section encourage the viewer to think about their own observations as well as how the observations of the other professionals could help them in their own work.
