A Guide to Effective Consultation With Settings Serving Infants, Toddlers, and Their Families
This guide defines the core knowledge, competencies, and dispositions for consultants working with early care and education programs and settings serving infants, toddlers, and their families.
The process is modeled on the early care and education system model (eco-model) and planning process used by the National Infant & Toddler Child Care Initiative, a project of the Child Care Bureau. It is designed to maximize involvement of stakeholders while minimizing face-to-face meeting requirements. The process will result in a concrete plan for implementing ELG for IT in your state.
The Guide to Effective Consultation builds upon the Early Childhood Consultant Infant/Toddler Training Modules developed by the National Infant & Toddler Child Care Initiative. It is the goal of the core knowledge, competencies, and dispositions (CKC) Workgroup that both of these documents will be used to guide and inform administrators, consultants, and practitioners in the design and delivery of infant and toddler care throughout New England.
