Summary:

This booklet introduces Project Prepare, a competency-based model for inservice or preservice personnel preparation in early childhood special education. Each of the nine Project Prepare modules focuses upon a cluster of competencies (knowledge, skills, and attitudes/values) needed by personnel working with young children who have disabilities. The project is based on principles of developmentally appropriate practice, exceptionality appropriate practice, support of integration, promotion of parent and professional collaboration, and the value of diversity. The modules stress flexibility, with alternative materials for use with either direct service staff, administrators, or general audiences. Additionally, the modules lend themselves to adaptability to different time requirements and different training formats (small/large group, individual study, single session/multiple sessions). Each module may be used independently of the others. After introductory materials, charts summarize module contents in terms of audiences and competency objectives. Abstracts and lists of goals are also provided for the modules, which cover: (1) assessment, (2) family collaboration, (3) the Individualized Education Program, (4) integration, (5) managing behaviors, (6) planning, (7) the role of play, (8) technology, and (9) transition. A final section describes the development of Project Prepare, and an appendix lists people involved in its development as well as Ohio regional resource centers.
