Description: Greater collaboration between Early Intervention Systems and Child Welfare Systems can lead to reducing the underrepresentation of children in IDEA Part C who have been maltreated. CAPTA requires referral provisions and procedures to IDEA Part C be in place for children under age three who are involved in substantiated cases of child abuse or neglect. Two webinars that can be viewed independently or in tandem will provide viewers with a background of the CAPTA requirements and highlight successful collaborative state and local efforts.

Presenters: Haidee Bernstein (Center for Youth with Multi-System Involvement at Westat), Sharon Walsh (Governmental Relations, Division for Early Childhood), Cathie Huckins (Local Part C Coordinator, Kansas), Kathy Keck (Foster Parent, Kansas), Evelyn Foard Shaw (Technical Assistant Specialist, Frank Porter Graham Institute/ECTA), Jing Fang (Teaching Assistant, University of Kentucky), Lenita Hartman (Program Initiatives Manager for Early Intervention Colorado, Office of Early Childhood), Lorendia Schmidt (CAPTA Administrator, Colorado Office of Children, Youth & Families Division of Child Welfare), Beth Scully (Colorado, Early Intervention Operations Manager), & Sondra Stegenga (Graduate Teaching Fellow/PhD Student, University of Oregon)

Protection & Well-Being Special Interest Group Leaders: Catherine Corr,, Carol M. Trivette,
