Throughout the United States, an increasingly strong emphasis is placed on interprofessional personnel preparation, particularly in the field of early intervention/education. Teams of professionals representing multiple disciplines work collaboratively to provide optimal services for young children (birth through age eight) with delays or disabilities; therefore, university students representing multiple disciplines are educated together in preparation for them to collaborate with other professionals and family members when they began their careers. The purpose of this article is to describe how faculty members from multiple disciplines (e.g., early childhood special education, general early childhood, physical therapy, occupational therapy) and schools at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) prepare graduate students through an interprofessional development program. Students are taught to collaborate and serve as team members using transdisciplinary procedures. Cases of young children with delays or disabilities are used to illustrate how to collaboratively address the issues and challenges identified in each case. This article explains the case-based process that is used at UAB to prepare graduate students to provide transdisciplinary services and includes the development of teaming skills and practices that are responsive to cultural and economic diversity.
