Early Childhood Partnerships Training and Technical Assistance (ECPTT)

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

Project Summary: This project addresses a training need of early childhood practitioners in Kansas to apply evidence-based practices and promote the development of young children. The project will build on and expand prior work conducted with the Kansas early intervention Part C Networks to utilize and apply with fidelity evidence-based practices in supporting young children with disabilities and their families. This will be accomplished through a series of training events designed to include Early Head Start, Head Start, Kansas Parents as Teachers, childcare providers, and other early childhood programs that Kansas identifies to effectively implement strategies shown to be effective in supporting young children and their learning.

The training series will provide specific information and ongoing follow-up for practitioners in the areas of family-centered care, research-based practices, coaching for capacity-building, use of everyday activities to promote child learning, and how to form and work on teams.
