About CIBC

The California Inclusion and Behavior Consultation (CIBC) Network is a resource and technical assistance project of the California Department of Education (CDE) Early Learning and Care Division (ELCD) and the WestEd Center for Prevention and Early Intervention (CPEI).

The goal of the CIBC Network is to support early care and education (ECE) programs and providers to respond effectively to all children, with a focus on those young children with disabilities, challenging behavior and other special needs.

CDE-ELCD contracted early care and education programs, including state preschools and child care centers, throughout California are the priority recipients of the on-site technical assistance consultation services.
