The deadline to participate in the ARTIC Survey has been extended!

The Pennsylvania Office of Child Development and Early Learning (OCDEL) invites Administrators or Supervisors who provide supervision to early childhood professionals, working with or supporting children ages 0 through 8 and their families and OCDEL Business Partners including Early Learning Resource Centers (ELRC), Early Intervention Technical Assistance (EITA), and the Pennsylvania Key staff to participate in the Attitudes Towards Trauma-Informed Care (ARTIC) Survey. The ARTIC Survey is a three-year project that will help guide statewide decision making around workforce development and early childhood mental health resources on trauma-informed care.

Twice a year, participants will take a 15-35 minute online ARTIC Survey and provide confidential input about how they view and experience the availability of knowledge, support, and other resources for the practice of trauma-informed care as it is integrated into the early childhood system. Each participant will receive confidential individual reports with their personal survey results updated each time they complete a survey. This report will help to recognize strengths and opportunities for growth in several areas of trauma-informed care.

Participants will also access optional free trainings and resources and may receive brief reports of the cross-sector efforts and progress. Participation is voluntary and space is limited. Although participants are encouraged to commit to completing the full series of six brief surveys over the course of three years, individuals may discontinue participation at any time.
