The California Early Start Library is a specialized collection of early intervention resource materials and information. This information service helps families, specialists, educators, caregivers, advocates, and other service providers who are working to improve the lives of infants and toddlers with disabilities or those at risk for developmental delays. The library collection includes books, manuals, reports, research articles, brochures, training materials, and videotapes related to early intervention topics. The library contents will be posted on the Early Start webpage when the transition is completed.
