Dear Visitors:
Federal funding for this website ended in 2003, therefore few materials have been added since that time. Fortunately, there is continued interest in culturally and appropriate materials, curriculum, and programs. Because of this, we have allowed this site to remain as an archive. Please feel free to use this site, but recognize that it is no longer current.

Technical Reports


On this page you will find links to the Technical Reports prepared by our collaborators. These documents are based on the recommended practices identified by the Division for Early Childhood (DEC) and the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC).

The purpose of these papers is to examine the extent to which the effective practices, identified by DEC and NAEYC, are represented in the delivery of early intervention services to families and young children (from birth to age 5) who come from diverse cultural and linguistic groups.

Each technical report includes a review of the literature, annotated bibliographies, and a list of available resources from the CLAS Website.

These technical reports are ideal for inservice and preservice early childhood personnel. They are useful in college classroom curricula, workshops or ongoing research in the field. You are welcome to view, download and print the technical reports.

The CLAS Collection

The CLAS Collection is a series of high-quality literature reviews in early intervention and early childhood special education. They are based on the earlier CLAS Technical Reports.
