Welcome to ECAP

The Early Childhood and Parenting Collaborative (ECAP) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is home to a number of projects that focus on educating and raising young children. It consists of professors, academic professionals, and research assistants who collaborate on a variety of projects under the direction of faculty in early childhood education and special education. Pooling their expertise and experience enables these professionals to articulate, clarify, and enhance the cooperative relationships among these projects and strengthen their contributions to the state of Illinois and beyond.
