How it works

For accurate results, the ICP is conducted by a trained outside observer, such as a technical assistance professional or administrator. The observer conducts the three parts of the ICP: a classroom observation scheduled during everyday routines; a face-to-face interview with the teacher; and a documentation review of the program’s policies, screeners and assessments, and child intervention plans.
