Training Early Intervention Assistants in California's Community Colleges

Region:
West
Description:
This study examines California's efforts to foster preservice preparation of early intervention assistants for infants and toddlers with special needs through the Community College Personnel Preparation Project, a certificate program offered by participating community colleges. The study finds that colleges could develop preservice training programs for early intervention assistants that meet requirements such as those for awarding a Chancellor's certificate, although not all participating colleges were successful, despite receiving state funding for startup expenses.
