As part of California's State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP) focusing on social- emotional development, a committee of the Interagency Coordinating Council (ICC) has identified guiding principles for the selection of assessment tools that may be used to collect data to document program improvement in supporting social-emotional skills in infants and toddlers in Early Start. This session will provide descriptions of the types of assessments used in Early Start, best practice in initial and ongoing assessment, and valid assessment tools.

Effective Practice

Effective Practice courses and workshops are training activities that support guided practice and exploration, facilitated interaction, and personal planning for early intervention service personnel. Activities may be face-to-face, online (such as a webinar) or a hybrid of face-to-face and online. As with all Early Start training, content is developed with field practitioners, managers and family partners.

Effective Practice special topic training sessions offer timely content, innovative tools, and strategies appropriate for experienced Early Start providers, service coordinators, managers, supervisors and family support personnel. Activities might include live trainings and webinars, conducted as needed to offer “just-in-time” communication to the field on issues critical to Early Start implementation. Special and critical topic webinars are conducted in real time and archived for later access.
