Intensive Support for a Cohort of States

We co-develop best practices for achieving statewide success. Our AEM Cohort is in the early months of identifying representatives from early childhood education, K-12, higher ed, workforce development, parent organizations, and Assistive Technology (AT) programs. Together, we’re  using the AEM Quality Indicators and the AEM Pilot to show how coordinated systems are created and sustained.
