The Technical Assistance Center on Social Emotional Intervention for Young Children, also known as TACSEI, is a continuation and expansion of the work of the Center for Evidence-Based Practice, Young Children with Challenging Behavior.

TACSEI uses the widely endorsed Pyramid Model framework for promoting social-emotional competence and addressing challenging behavior as the conceptual model to deliver this important information.
