Preparation of Personnel To Provide Early Intervention Services to Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities: Essential Early Education Reach Out Program. Final Report.
Vermont Univ., Burlington. Univ. Affiliated Program of Vermont.
This final report describes the activities and outcomes of a federally funded project that was designed to increase the availability of graduate level Essential Early Educators in Vermont who can: (1) provide integrated, family-centered, early childhood special education services to young children with disabilities and their families; (2) provide direct and consultative services across home, center, and inclusive community-based settings; (3) work with other agencies and disciplines to implement a comprehensive, coordinated system of services; and (4) assume the multiple education and leadership roles required for coordinating, implementing, and evaluating early childhood special education services in rural, sparsely populated settings. The project established and maintained a representative statewide Advisory Council to oversee activities related to Vermont's goals of establishing a unified system of early care, education, and intervention services. The project also succeeded in recruiting 28 participants from Head Start, Parent-Child Centers, child care, preschool and kindergarten programs to train to become Essential Early Educators. Appendices include the training strand for a master's in special education with an emphasis in Essential Early Education, and the training strand for a master's in special education with an emphasis in leadership.
