We value collaboration and feel that by working with other organizations we can have the greatest impact for young children with disabilities and their families. We work closely with other OSEP-funded TA centers, along with other organizations such as DEC, ITCA, and NASDSE, to provide high-quality products and services to state Part C and Section 619 programs and coordinators.
OSEP-funded Early Childhood TA Centers
The U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) has funded national TA Centers to respond to requests for technical assistance from state Part C and Part B 619 agencies.

We also work with organizations, associations, and TA partners in the broader early childhood field to build national awareness around the importance of including Part C and 619 in early childhood initiatives.
