The Desired Results Access Project supports California’s early childhood special education community to understand, use, and benefit from the DRDP (2015). We value collaborative, strengths-based, and evidence-based approaches to professional development. We strive to provide high quality, responsive, and useful assistance to the field. Our values align to the California Training and Technical Assistance Collaborative’s (TTAC) Core Messages. TTAC is an interagency partnership dedicated to delivering quality personnel development activities for those who serve children birth-5 with disabilities and other special needs and their families. We believe that professional development activities, when guided by these Core Messages, promote positive outcomes for young children and their families.
