Mission
The National Early Childhood Technical Assistance Center supports the implementation of the early childhood provisions of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Our mission is to strengthen service systems to ensure that children with disabilities (birth through five) and their families receive and benefit from high quality, culturally appropriate, and family-centered supports and services.
Program Description
We work with administrators from all states and other U.S. jurisdictions responsible for planning and implementing services under the IDEA:
  • Part C,
  • Early Intervention Program for Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities,
  • Part B,
  • Section 619 Preschool Grants for Children with Disabilities,
  • State Interagency Coordinating Councils (ICC),
  • State Early Childhood Technical Assistance programs

We also involve others, including additional state agency personnel, service providers, families, community and higher education representatives, TA providers, and individuals from multiple levels of the service system.
