Early Childhood Education
Topics in Early Childhood Special Education (TECSE)
Topics in Early Childhood Special Education (TECSE) is one of the leading scholarly, peer-reviewed journals in the area of early intervention and early childhood special education. Its mission is to communicate information about early intervention, which is defined as services to infants, toddlers, and preschoolers at risk for, or who display, developmental disabilities and their families (Carta, 2005). The journal publishes empirical research, policy analyses, literature reviews, and position papers. Beginning in April 1981, it originally published four topical issues each year, and has evolved into publishing annually three topical issues and one open or nontopical issue. Articles from TECSE have influenced policy and practices for infants and young children with disabilities and are often cited by authors of papers in other journals.
