Comprehensive System of Personnel Development

Core Messages of Effective Training and Technical Assistance

The delivery of quality early intervention services requires that personnel are qualified and appropriately trained to provide those services to eligible infants, young children, and their families. Early Start’s Comprehensive System of Personnel Development (CSPD) provides the framework for coordinating the delivery of personnel development activities throughout California. Pre-service preparation, in-service training, and technical assistance are the essential CSPD components delivered through a variety of personnel development activities, including the Early Start Neighborhood.
