Design Considerations for State TA Systems.
This planning resource is meant to serve as "stimulus information" to enable and guide a participatory planning process involving a team of key stakeholders of Parts B (including Section 619) and C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and others who are working to improve services for children and youth with disabilities ages birth through 21. Its purpose is to help state sponsors and planners think strategically about the coherent design and effective operation of their technical assistance (TA) systems. The resources consists of the following three parts: "Part I: Foundations and Perspectives of TA"; "Part II: Three Selected Readings on TA"; and "Part III: Workbook for TA Design." Together, these three parts of the document aim to help a planning team understand the possibilities to be considered for crafting a state TA system, which will ultimately improve the quality of local service programs and their results with children, youth, and families.
