Basic Competencies for Personnel in Early Intervention Programs: Guidelines for Development. WESTAR Series Paper No. 14.
Zeitlin, Shirley, Ed.; And Others
The paper presents core competencies which are appropriate across service delivery models and across disciplines for training personnel in early intervention. Part I provides a historic perspective on practices, child development research, the federal role, children served, family involvement, and the need for early intervention. Part II contains the competencies. Premises for each competency category are set forth first, then competencies are listed for each of the five following categories: child development (including typical and atypical child development), family involvement, program implementation, assessment, and administration. An appendix presents results of a survey sent to 181 staff members in the 49 Handicapped Children's Early Education Projects as part of the research for the paper's preparation. (MC)
