this page you will find links to the Technical
Reports prepared by our collaborators. These documents
are based on the recommended practices identified by the Division
for Early Childhood (DEC) and the National
Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).
The purpose of these
papers is to examine the extent to which the effective practices,
identified by DEC and NAEYC, are represented in the delivery of
early intervention services to families and young children (from
birth to age 5) who come from diverse cultural and linguistic groups.
Each technical report
includes a review of the literature, annotated bibliographies, and
a list of available resources from the CLAS Website.
These technical reports
are ideal for inservice and preservice early childhood personnel.
They are useful in college classroom curricula, workshops or ongoing
research in the field. You are welcome to view, download and print
the technical reports.
