This article examines the Kentucky Initiative for Social Skill and Emotional Development which provides annual training and technical assistance to build early childhood programs' capacity to deliver practices known to promote social and emotional competency. The initiative is based on the 3-tiered Positive Behavior Support model that teaches educators to both prevent and intervene with challenging behaviors. The training and technical assistance components of this initiative are described as well as limitations of the current initiative and recommendations for implementation in other states. (Contains 2 figures and 1 table.)
