Crosswalk of the Initial Practice-Based Professional Preparation Standards for Early Interventionists/Early Childhood Special Educators (2020) and the Professional Standards and Competencies for Early Childhood Educators (2020)


While IHE programs must consider the set(s) of applicable standards in their entirety, this crosswalk is designed to assist IHE faculty when designing curriculum and preparing documentation for accreditation to understand when and how these sets of standards intersect. The crosswalk is designed to be a resource to accompany the full sets of standards for the following types of programs (see Table 1) in the design, implementation, and evaluation of curricula. Blended EI/ECSE and ECE programs can use the crosswalk to determine what assignments, activities, and field experiences meet both sets of standards and when discipline specific experiences are needed. The crosswalk may also be a useful guide for ECE programs that want to integrate some content specific to young children with developmental delays and disabilities into the curriculum, and similarly, for EI/ECSE programs to integrate general early childhood content into the curriculum.
