Request for Assistance: Center Based Programs

The California Inclusion and Behavior Consultation (CIBC) Network offers on-site consultation and technical assistance (TA) to early care and education providers seeking to support the learning and development of children ages birth to five with disabilities and other special needs, and those with challenging behaviors.

California Department of Education/Early Education and Support Division (CDE/EESD) contracted early care and education programs throughout California, and those participating in their local Quality Counts California (QCC), are the recipients of the onsite technical assistance consultation services. Programs in communities that do not currently have similar consultation services are a priority.

If you are a director or site supervisor, please discuss the CIBC consultation services with your staff prior to requesting services. You will be asked to provide your contact information, classroom location, and reason for the TA request.

If you are a teacher or provider, please discuss your intent to request technical assistance with your supervisor or program manager prior to submitting a TA request. Administration may or may not be involved in the on-site consultation services but it is appropriate to notify them of your request for CIBC Network consultation.

Once a TA request has been submitted, CIBC staff will contact the site directly to gather additional information regarding the request and needs. TA assignments are determined by the CIBC staff who matches a local consultant to provide the on-site visits. Each classroom in a program requires a TA request submission and assigned unique identifier.
