Delivery Of Statewide Early Intervention Web-based Training.

Tenders are invited for Delivery of Statewide Early Intervention Web-based Training

Description: The Department is designated as the lead New York State agency to implement the statewide Early Intervention Program (EIP) as authorized by Part C of the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The EIP is a statewide program that provides a wide range of therapeutic and supportive services for eligible children with disabilities ages birth to three (3) years old and their families. The mission of the EIP is to identify and evaluate as early as possible those infants and toddlers whose healthy development is compromised and provide for appropriate intervention to improve child and family development. A major federal requirement for all State EIPs is the development of a Comprehensive System of Personnel Development (CSPD) to ensure capacity for service delivery to all eligible children and their families. An important component of a successful CSPD is the provision of high quality training by experienced trainers. The statewide CSPD mission is to ensure that the New York State early intervention system meets the needs of infants, toddlers and their families through access to qualified personnel. Under previous contracts, statewide training was presented in a traditional in-person classroom format only. However, traditional classroom trainings have become increasingly difficult due to travel limitations outside of the municipal borders to attend trainings especially in rural regions of the state, poor travel conditions during certain months of the year, and the inability to take time away from delivering services to the children and families. Parents of children participating in the EIP who attend statewide trainings to better understand the EIP and learn skills to advocate for their childs needs have also expressed difficulty in attending in-person trainings because of their responsibilities at home.
