Interdisciplinary collaborations are no easy task. As described in the Matsuo, Pryor, and Sessions article, the achievement of a shared reality by sharing information across disciplines is an ongoing and often challenging process. Yet, the need for shared knowledge and practice is inherent in providing family centered, developmentally and culturally appropriate early childhood services (Division of Early Childhood [DEC], n.d.; National Association for the Education of Young Children [NAEYC], 1996). In this article, the developmental progression of an interdisciplinary clinical research project, the Saint Louis University International Adoption Clinic, will be described. A case study will be used to demonstrate the process and need for interdisciplinary collaboration for assessment of internationally adopted children.
