Abstract

Objectives

This project employed Boot Camp Translation (BCT) to engage community stakeholders in the translation of developmental screening guidelines and early intervention service recommendations into locally-relevant, family-centered messaging.

Methods

A subject matter expert provided an overview of development, developmental delay, developmental screening and referral processes, and early intervention to BCT participants. BCT participants and facilitators met in-person and via teleconferencing over the course of 12 months to co-develop locally-relevant messages and materials.

Results

BCT participants focused on defining development, developmental delay, and early intervention, rather than describing developmental screening and referral processes. They proposed several dissemination strategies, and focused much of their effort on the creation of an informational booklet designed to educate and empower caregivers.

Conclusions for Practice

BCT is a useful approach for translating developmental screening guidelines and early intervention recommendations into locally-relevant, family-centered messaging.
