Abstract/ Summary

This publication, Technical Assistance Competencies for Maine’s Early Childhood Workforce (2017), was developed to define the relevant knowledge, skills and dispositions required by Technical Assistance (TA) professionals who support early childhood practitioners (serving prenatal through age 8) in Maine. TA professionals represent a wide range of disciplines and support a diverse early childhood workforce. These professionals adhere to varying regulations and standards and work within multiple settings. The framework for Maine’s TA Competencies defines the components of quality TA service provision across disciplines and also aligns with state priorities and national efforts.
