Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE)

ECSE TTAC staff members are part of a statewide system that supports professionals providing special education services to children, birth through kindergarten age, in a variety of settings. Staff members collaborate with community partners including early childhood interventionists and agencies, schools, and programs. They provide professional development and technical assistance to staff of these organizations to facilitate the knowledge and use of effective, research-based practices in early childhood special education. TTAC support addresses practices that foster the inclusion of young students with disabilities in environments with their non-disabled peers with an emphasis on early learning standards, including early literacy, mathematics, and other curricula. Additionally, the TTAC staff assists educators in increasing positive student outcomes, particularly on the early childhood indicators addressed in Virginia's State Performance Plan.
