Programs Recognized for Best Practice in Early Childhood Services

The Kansas State Department of Education and Department of Health and Environment identify, on a yearly basis, early intervention and early childhood preschool programs from across the state that demonstrate application of best practice in a component of their program.

Application for Recognition in Best Practice

Applications are sent to all early intervention networks and preschool programs serving children with disabilities and their families in the state of Kansas. The applications are then reviewed by a panel of professionals in the fields of early intervention and early childhood special education. The programs identified are awarded a certificate of recognition and $1,250 to use as an added resource.
