Summary

This report discusses a study that examined state technical assistance (TA) infrastructures that support research-based practices for improved outcomes for students with disabilities served under Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The 10 participating states included: Alabama, Colorado, Iowa, Maryland, Montana, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, and Wisconsin. Results from the study indicate the semantics of defining technical and professional development has resulted in a variety of descriptions across the 10 states. The study also revealed four consistent themes regarding factors necessary for providing effective state-level TA. These factors are equally important and dependent on collaborative efforts among federal, state, and local stakeholders. Factors include: (1) a dissemination mechanism must be in place to integrate TA into daily practice in local schools; (2) qualified educators, related service providers, and administrators must be on the front lines in order for TA to be used effectively; (3) ongoing relationships must be nurtured with key individuals to promote collaboration between the education system and other agencies/organizations; and (4) evaluation of TA activities must focus on the impact of the TA initiatives. Appendices include definitions and the survey. (CR)
