Assessment Intervention Learning Policy Training


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 gives decision makers, caregivers and service providers an enhanced awareness and understanding of, and ability to use evidence-based practices for improving the social-emotional outcomes for young children with, or at risk for, delays or disabilities. 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.
