In previous years, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and Kansas State Department of Education have identified early intervention and early childhood preschool programs from across the state that demonstrate application of best practice in a component of their program. Listed below are links to information regarding the programs that have been recognized.
Application for Recognition in Best Practice
Best Practice applications are sent and made available to all early intervention programs serving children with disabilities and their families in the state of Kansas. A panel of professionals in the field of early intervention then reviews the completed applications. The programs identified are awarded a certificate of recognition and $1,250 to use as an added resource.
