Association information

The Core of our Association

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Infant and Toddler Coordinators Association is organized as a not-for-profit corporation to promote mutual assistance, cooperation, and exchange of information and ideas in the administration of Part C and to provide support to state and territory Part C coordinators.

To achieve this, the Association is committed to:

  • Identify and represent the interests of state and territory infant and toddler early intervention programs at the national level;
  • Develop and recommend models, standards, policies, and programs that promote quality services to eligible infants and toddlers and their families; and
  • Strengthen current leadership and foster new leadership in early intervention programs at the local, state or territory, and national levels.
