Maryland’s Early Intervention & Preschool Special Education System Personnel Standards: Database and Requirements Overview, July 1, 2019

With the initial release of Maryland’s Early Intervention & Preschool Special Education System Personnel Standards Guide on July 1st, 2019, this webinar provides an overview of the REVISED Personnel Standards requirements for early intervention providers and recommendations for preschool special education educators and related service providers.  Additionally, this webinar delivers an introduction to Maryland’s Early Intervention & Preschool Special Education Personnel Standards Database.

Leaders play a critical role in establishing the conditions for successful implementation of natural and inclusive practices that support children’s meaningful participation in everyday activities and routines. Completing the Personnel Standards will provide the foundation for all early intervention and preschool special education providers to implement the natural and inclusive evidence-based practices throughout the development, implementation, and evaluation of the IFSP and IEP processes, as well as the teaming and coaching practices essential to supporting the process.
