Recruitment and retention of early intervention (EI) and early childhood special education (ECSE) personnel: A synthesis of innovative practices


Recruitment and Retention of Early Intervention/Early Childhood Special Education Personnel: A Synthesis of Innovative Practices curates key strategies that address personnel shortages among those who serve young children with disabilities and their families. Drawn from research and innovations from states and local programs, these strategies show promise in helping recruit and retain Early Intervention/Early Childhood Special Education (EI/ECSE) practitioners and leaders. The strategy areas align with The Office of Special Education Program (OSEP)'s Attract, Prepare, Retain: Effective Personnel for All initiative. It includes examples from across EI/ECSE, school-based K–12 special education teachers, paraprofessionals, and personnel with a discipline-specific focus (for example, speech language pathologists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists).
