Help Wanted: Early Intervention and Early Childhood Special Education Workforce Needs. Findings from a National Survey (USA)

By Allison Friedman-Krauss et al


From the conclusion:

‘Another concern is that too many respondents reported high levels of stress. They also reported high caseloads, inadequate supports, and poor compensation. All these issues need to be addressed, together, to improve retention of the current workforce as well as recruitment of new, well-qualified EI and ECSE professionals. Improvements to training specific to EI and ECSE as well as increased and tailored supports are also important to retain the current workforce…’
