- Lise Fox, PhD
The Early Childhood Technical Assistance Center (ECTA) is funded by the Office of Special Education programs to provide support to systems and programs providing early intervention and preschool services to infants, toddlers, and preschool children with or at risk of disabilities. The University of South Florida is participating by providing intensive technical assistance to states for the implementation and scaling up of recommended practices.
Project faculty are assisting Minnesota and New Hampshire in the statewide implementation and scaling-up of DEC Recommended Practices for improving child outcomes. Capacity building activities include the development of data decision – making tools, training materials, and the mentorship of state training and technical assistance professionals
