Initial practice-based professional preparation standards for early interventionists/early childhood special educators: The development process (2018-2020)


Based on a review of research, related standards (e.g., NAEYC, CEC, InTASC, CAEP Elementary Education), and other relevant documents (e.g., DEC Initial Specialty Set of Knowledge and Skill Statements, DEC Recommended Practices, CEC High Leverage Practices), the SDTF brainstormed essential knowledge and skills needed by beginning Early Interventionists and Early Childhood Special Educators in six topical areas. Through a series of SDTF virtual and face-to-face meetings and small group assignments, the original list was edited and then refined into Standard and Component statements. (author abstract)
