In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, many states continue to provide Part C and 619 services online or via a hybrid model of remote and in-person. For programs that have moved to in-person, access is often limited to only children and staff. As a result, challenges have emerged in determining the best ways to provide practice-based coaching to support practitioners with the implementation of evidence-based practices.
Join a panel of state leaders who will share their roles in the development and pilot of the Part C and Part B/619 Leadership Initiative sponsored by the Early Childhood Personnel Center (ECPC). Strengthening the knowledge and skills of the Part C and Part B 619 coordinators leads to enhanced effectiveness and retention of these critical state system leaders.
The improvement of social and emotional outcomes for young children depends on practitioners using evidence-based practices in the support of families and the instruction of young children.
