This article will provide an important historical context of the development of early intervention (EI) in regards to oropharyngeal dysphagia and the rationale of why service delivery models are so different across the United States. Since the onset of IDEA, Part C (2004) we have seen a significant need for EI specialists who have training in developmental feeding/swallowing issues and who are comfortable utilizing these skills within non-medical environments. Based on the number of infants/toddlers who are currently receiving services, evidence is available that indicates more qualified professionals will be needed as we look to the future.
