Training Early Intervention Assistants in California’s Community Colleges

By Diane Hammon Kellegrew, Jean Pacifico-Banta, Kari Becker Stewart


This report, prepared by REL West, examines California’s efforts to foster preservice preparation of early intervention assistants for infants and toddlers with special needs through the Community College Personnel Preparation Project, a certificate program offered by participating community colleges. The study finds that colleges could develop preservice training programs for early intervention assistants that meet requirements such as those for awarding a Chancellor’s certificate, although not all participating colleges were successful, despite receiving state funding for startup expenses

In addition to the full report, a two-page synopsis is available.

Information about the Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) system and other REL publications can be found at the National Regional Educational Laboratory Program.
