Itinerant Model of Collaboration

In an itinerant model, an Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) endorsed teacher travels between classrooms or programs to consult with and coach PreK endorsed teachers and provide direct services to individual children as needed. The itinerant teacher’s focus is on building the knowledge and skills of the Pre-kindergarten endorsed teacher and teaching assistant so embedded instruction can be delivered across the school day.
