Part C and Part B/619 Coordinators on leadership knowledge and skills to:

  • Actively engage in broader early childhood initiatives
  • Use TA effectively
  • Build a more effective and sustainable state system that can support a competent early childhood workforce


Representatives from each of the seven professional organizations reviewed the competency areas and sub-areas and presented these core competency areas for approval to each of their respective organizations. American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA); the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA); the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA); the Council of Exceptional Children (CEC) and the Division of Early Childhood (DEC), the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC); and ZERO TO THREE

Case studies and articles illustrate the cross disciplinary competencies and are for use by Higher Education faculty and Professional development staff.
