The Early Start Institute series is an early intervention curriculum that is research based and family centered. Each Institute is designed to provide learning experiences facilitated by parent and professional trainers who have extensive experience in the field of early intervention. Agency teams, parents working in Early Start Family Resource Centers, and professionals working with infants and toddlers and their families receiving early intervention services are encouraged to attend.
Early Start Institute Series and Skill Builders have been designed to provide service providers and service coordinators with an early intervention curriculum which addresses the variety of interests and needs considered critical for the delivery of appropriate early intervention services.
The Early Start Service Coordination Institutes have been designed specifically to meet the personnel development needs of regional center and local education agency service coordinators. The four Institutes, held in conjunction with the CORE Series, are designed to emphasize service coordinator's responsibilities and documentation required by statutes and regulations. Key concepts are addressed and implementation ideas shared.
The Advanced Practiced Institute, introduced in 2006, is an institute designed especially for managers and service coordinators with extensive experience in the Early Start system. Curriculum focuses on skill development.
The Family Resources and Supports Institute ensure that quality parent-to-parent and family support services are delivered by qualified staff. This Institute is dedicated to providing a range of new ideas, strategies, supports and networking opportunities for family support staff. The Institute is usually held in February or March to coincide with Early Start Month.
