Welcoming the new year... and our new co-leaders!

Happy New Year! We thank you again for the opportunity to serve as co-leaders of the DEC Early Intervention Community of Practice for the past two years.

We have an exciting update to share with you. Please join us in warmly welcoming our new co-leaders, Drs. M'Lisa Shelden and Dathan Rush!

As we suspect many of you already know, M'Lisa and Dathan have a wealth of hands-on experience, knowledge, and expertise to support and empower others to use recommended practices for young children, providers, and families in EI/ECSE. We look forward to their leadership!
