ABSTRACT

The development of a child, especially a child with a disability, is conditional upon the initiation of rehabilitation measures immediately after the problem has been identified. The quality of the reaction is conditioned by the functioning of the therapeutic team. The main purpose of the research was the diagnosis of early support system for child development in Poland. The research was based on the model of the functioning of teams by Twardowski. 44 teams took part in the study. The results show that depending on the area of the study, specific to the model (multi, inter or trans-disciplinary) solutions are applied. Areas most closely related to the multidisciplinary model are: responsibility for the realization of the program, cooperation with other entities, cooperation with other entities and selection of team members' directives for functioning (functioning). Areas most closely related to the interdisciplinary model are: carrying out diagnosis, cooperation with parents' development of work program and means of communication within the team. Area most closely related to the transdisciplinary model is: content assumptions. Areas most closely related to inter and transdisciplinary are: development of work program and team development. Research allows diagnosing the condition and determining the direction of development of the teams.
