In 1986, federal legislation was passed that included provisions requiring states to use qualified personnel to provide early intervention and special education and related services. Regulations were finalized by the U.S. Department of Education in 1989. The law and regulations specify that states must indicate in their state plans for implementing Part B of the Education of the Handicapped Act (now known as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, or IDEA), as well as in their applications for funding the fourth year of the early intervention program for infants, toddlers, and their families (Part H), “policies and procedures relating to the establishment and maintenance of standards to ensure that personnel … are appropriately and adequately prepared and trained, including:

the establishment and maintenance of standards which are consistent with any State approved or recognized certification, licensing, registration or other comparable requirements … and

to the extent such standards are not based on the highest requirements in the State applicable to a specific profession or discipline, the steps the State is taking to require the retraining or hiring of personnel that meet appropriate professional requirements in the State [34 CFR Part 300.153(b)(c)].
