  • A Network of Technical Assistance and Dissemination Centers funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP)
  • A bit of contextual reference. NDC/NICHCY is funded out of the Department of Education > Office of Special Education and Rehabilitation Services (OSERS) (circled in red here) > Office of Special Education Programs (seen on next slide)
  • Here’s a schematic of OSERS, note that NDC is funded out of the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) and is part of their technical assistance and dissemination (TA&D) network.OSEP receives Part D Discretionary money from the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) to fund technical assistance and dissemination centers loosely referred to as the Technical Assistance and Dissemination Network (TA&D). This group of 40-50 centers works collaboratively to coordinate their efforts to ensure states receive the most appropriate assistance possible without duplication of efforts, effectively and efficiently leveraging OSEP’s limited resources. These centers are each competitively awarded, most in five year cycles.
