A system framework for building high-quality early intervention and preschool special education programs

Building and sustaining high-quality early intervention and preschool special education systems is a complex and ongoing process for state agencies. To support states, the Early Childhood Technical Assistance Center (ECTA Center), funded by The Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), has developed a framework that addresses the question, "What does a state need to put into place in order to encourage/support/require local implementation of evidence-based practices that result in positive outcomes for young children with disabilities and their families?" The purpose of the ECTA System Framework is to guide state Part C and Section 619 Coordinators and their staff in: (1) evaluating their current systems; (2) identifying potential areas for improvement, and; (3) developing more effective, efficient systems that support implementation of evidence-based practices.
