The medical home is an approach to providing high quality health care services to children in partnership with families and community professionals. The current focus on the medical home at national and state levels affords an opportunity for early intervention and early childhood special education providers to improve their collaboration with primary health care professionals and thus improve the system of care for children and families in their local communities.
