about the program
The Center for Prevention & Early Intervention (CPEI) provides training and technical assistance in policy development, translation of research to practice, systems evaluation, and implementation of evidence-based practices in support of children and youth (birth through age 22) with, or at risk for, disabilities.
CPEI partners with state and local education and human service agencies to build capacity to improve service systems and developmental and academic outcomes, and promote a comprehensive, integrated approach.
CPEI's areas of expertise include social and emotional development, early mental health, academic and behavioral strategies for success through Response to Intervention, and inclusive practices across community and school settings.
Early Start Online, designed and implemented by CPEI, is an interactive and facilitated professional development series for professionals working with infants and toddlers with disabilities and their families.
