The findings of EC-TIIS 2 provide evidence on the effectiveness of web-based training as a tool for educators and families in advancing educational opportunities for young children with disabilities. The resulting product and procedures will add valuable information to the field of early childhood technology as well as to the research on online data collection methods. EC-TIIS 2 staff impacted over 2500 educators and families with information on the EC-TIIS website and research results through dissemination activities, including international, national, regional, state, and local conference presentations and exhibits and postings on listservs and websites. Research on the effects of EC-TIIS on educators, families, university faculty, and both preservice and graduate students continues in Phase 3.
