Call for Input: DEC/ITCA Joint Position Statement on Service Coordination in Early Intervention

Members from the Division for Early Childhood (DEC) of the Council for Exception Children and IDEA Infant Toddler Coordinators Association (ITCA), along with key stakeholders, have developed a Joint Position Statement on Service Coordination in Early Intervention. The purpose of the joint position statement is to elevate the role of Service Coordination in early intervention by describing the beliefs, expertise, roles, and responsibilities of high quality Service Coordinators. The position statement includes recommendations to consider in order to support Service Coordinators to provide the highest quality services.
