Trohanis TA Projects


Trohanis TA Projects are dedicated to improving the availability and quality of services, and ensuring optimal outcomes, for very young children with, or at risk for, disabilities and their families.

We assist states and local agencies that provide early intervention and early childhood special education to implement evidence-based practices, develop and manage effective and efficient systems of services, coordinate inter-agency programs, develop data systems and improve data quality to improve services and outcomes for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers and their families.

Trohanis TA Projects has evolved into an interrelated cluster of national and state-level centers and projects. Our staff have a deep understanding of the challenges states face in implementing high quality services for children and their families, as well as considerable experience and expertise in helping states address these challenges.
