ECPC's groundwork for the preparation and retention of a highly qualified and effective early childhood intervention workforce

A comprehensive system of personnel development, or CSPD, is a collective framework representing six interrelated areas that individually contribute to a statewide infrastructure for the preparation and retention of a highly qualified and effective early childhood intervention workforce

Tools and Resources

Develop a State CSPD

Comprehensive Systems of Personnel Development

  • Develop strategies to identify, hire and maintain a qualified workforce across discipline
  • Align discipline specific and cross discipline knowledge, skills and competencies with national requirements and recommendation
  • Improve and increase ECI programs of study at an IHE to prepare for the ECI workforce

Course Enhancement Materials

Course enhancement offerings include e-learning lessons, practice guides, resources, and CONNECT Modules. These materials were developed for Higher Education faculty and professional development staff for use when training early interventionists, early childhood special education educators, and related service providers to use evidenced based practices. The materials provide authentic learning activities and opportunities for self-evaluation and student-guided mastery experiences.


Institute Materials

The ECPC Leadership Institutes focus on developing strategies with Part C and B(619) Coordinators to integrate their programs, policies, and personnel into state early childhood initiatives for infants and young children who receive services under IDEA.
