Comprehensive System of Personnel Development
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires each state’s early intervention program to ensure that infants, toddlers, and young children with disabilities and their families are provided services by knowledgeable, skilled, competent, and highly qualified personnel, and that enough of these personnel are available in the state to meet service needs. (IDEA, Sec 303.118)
Throughout 2022, a stakeholder workgroup was consulted to assist in developing a written plan for Ohio Early Intervention’s Comprehensive System of Personnel Development (CSPD). The plan frames activities and initiatives and serves to document progress and goal achievement. The written plan for Ohio Early Intervention’s CSPD was finalized in December of 2022.
