This study describes the implementation of the main phases of the rehabilitation process of children with motor disabilities who visit Dutch therapeutic toddler classes. Parent involvement, as well as parents' and professionals' satisfaction were also investigated. It was found that in about half of the cases there was no initial assessment of the child, nor a jointly formulated intervention plan. When there was an assessment, several quality standards were not met. In most cases parents were involved in the evaluation phase of the rehabilitation process. However, the proportion of parents involved in the phases of assessment and intervention planning were much lower. The results are discussed within the context of current developments in The Netherlands with respect to team communication and recent research findings.
