National Early Childhood Technical Assistance Center (NECTAC)
The NECTAC Technical Assistance (TA) Model for Long-Term Systems Change (LTSC) recognizes that components of a state system are highly interactive and changes at one level are not likely to be sustained without supportive changes at all related levels. Improved child and family outcomes require: intervention practices that are research-based, high quality and individualized; a supportive local infrastructure; an effective personnel development system; state policies that guide the implementation of recommended practices; and a quality assurance system that regularly monitors and evaluates implementation, performance and results. NECTAC has assisted states in designing and implementing over 25 LTSC initiatives. Brief highlights from three state LTSC initiatives supported by NECTAC are presented.
