(100 words or fewer) The purpose of NASTIPS is to increase the number of high-quality interdisciplinary early childhood educators and speech/language pathologists serving children with NAS or other high intensity needs. We intend to train two cohorts, each consisting of eight scholars, through the duration of the grant. Half ot he scholars will work toward initial certification in Interdisicplinary Early Childhood Education (IECE) and half will work toward a masters degree in Communication Disorders. IECE scholars will finish the program with a Rank III teaching certification and Communication scholars will finish with a masters degree and necessary coursework to become a licensed speech language pathologist. Briefly describe how the project will be designed, managed, and evaluated to address the identified outcomes.
