Call for Input: Service Coordination Stakeholders
In order to provide guidance for staff employed in Part C Early Intervention programs fulfilling the federal requirement of service coordination, we are seeking input on DRAFT Recommended Knowledge and Skills for Service Coordinators (RKSSC). The RKSSC were developed by the National Service Coordination Leadership Institute Group (a subgroup of the National SC Training Workgroup) with support from the Division for Early Childhood (DEC) and Early Childhood Personnel Center (ECPC).
This survey may be shared and completed by service coordination stakeholders who can speak to the knowledge and skills service coordinators need to perform their duties. Stakeholders may include service coordinators, administrators (including Part C Coordinators), service coordination supervisors, training and technical assistance providers, council members and family representatives. Prior to completing the survey we ask that you orient yourself to the DRAFT RKSSC, how they were developed, and potential uses for them. This survey should take approximately 10 minutes to complete and we request all responses by May 1, 2020.
Data collected has the potential to help the following objectives: 1) critically examine the DRAFT RKSSC; 2) identify edits and/or additions to the DRAFT RKSSC; 3) determine knowledge and skills service coordinators need to acquire and demonstrate; 4) inform decisions pertaining to training and professional development for service coordinators; and 5) elevate service coordination as a profession across the nation.
Note that this study has been reviewed by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Institutional Review Board (IRB #20140). If you have questions related to the survey, please contact Sarah Nichols at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you in advance for your participation in this survey!
