Training and Technical Assistance Collaborative (TTAC)

The Training and Technical Assistance Collaborative is the only statewide forum that convenes training and technical assistance coordinators and providers, as well as representatives from the funding agencies that support them, to discuss issues and explore coordination and collaboration opportunities.

Its mission is to provide an environment for building relationships and nurturing trust among leaders in support of coordination and collaboration in the planning and implementation of early intervention training and technical assistance activities. By providing a forum for cross-agency and cross-disciplinary discussion and resource sharing, TTAC promotes the mindful integration of specific core values into the delivery of early child care, education, and early intervention focusing on increasing child and family outcomes.
