Abstract

States and territories participating in Part C services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) are required to design and implement a comprehensive system of personnel development. In this article, an apprenticeship model used in one state will be described. The range of factors influencing how this model was implemented and reflections from participating professionals highlight its relative strengths and weaknesses. Specific challenges encountered during implementation and recommendations for the field will be discussed.
