Integrated Training Collaborative (ITC)

Overview

This project coordinates Virginia's personnel development and training for early intervention providers who offer supports and services under Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) - early intervention services for infants and toddlers with developmental delays and disabilities and their families. The ITC shares a commitment to a coordinated and consistent plan of preservice and inservice training as part of a Comprehensive System of Personnel Development (CSPD), in order to ensure the provision of services by highly qualified personnel. The ITC brings together the experience and expertise of providers, family members, university faculty, Part C staff, and other dedicated individuals to help implement training opportunities and enhance educational networking on behalf of infants and toddlers with developmental delays or disabilities and their families. (Funded by the Virginia Department of Mental Health, Mental Retardation, and Substance Abuse Services.)
