Measuring Outcomes for Programs Serving Young
Children with Disabilities Lynne Kahn and
Christina Kasprzak ECO/NECTAC at FPG/UNC June 2,
2009
2
  • Goals for the call
  • to provide the latest information on how programs
    are measuring child and family outcomes to meet
    federal requirements
  • to provide information about how PTI staff can be
    involved in state efforts to measure child and
    family outcomes

2
3
  • Why are state early intervention and preschool
    special education agencies collecting data on
    child and family outcomes?

4
  • Why outcomes data?
  • Accountability
  • Federal government (Office of Special Education
    Programs, U.S. Department of Education) requires
    that states submit data on outcomes
  • In some states, policy-makers are asking for
    outcome data
  • Program Improvement
  • State agencies (and local programs) want to use
    data on outcomes to improve services for children
    and families

5
Driving force from the federal level
  • Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA)
  • Program Assessment Rating Tool (PART)
  • Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)

6
How Office of Special Education (OSEP) responded
to PART
  • Required states to submit outcome data in their
    Annual Performance Report (APR)
  • Funded the Early Childhood Outcomes (ECO) Center
    in October 2003 to gather input, conduct
    research, make recommendations, and assist states

7
Early work of the ECO Center
  • Convened stakeholders in 2004 to address what the
    outcomes should be (i.e., what outcomes should
    states be required to report on for Part C and
    619?) and what should be reported about the
    outcomes
  • Based on stakeholder input, ECO recommended a set
    of child and family outcomes in February 2005.

OSEP Requirement Child Outcomes
Percentage of children with IFSPs/IEPs who
demonstrate improved
  • Positive social emotional skills (including
    positive social relationships)
  • Acquisition and use of knowledge and skills
    (including early language/communication and
    early literacy)
  • Use of appropriate behaviors to meet their needs

9
State Approaches to Measuring Child Outcomes
  • Child Outcomes Summary Form (COSF)
  • Publishers online assessments
  • One tool statewide
  • Other

10
OSEP Requirement Family Indicator
  • Percent of families participating in Part C who
    report that EI services have helped the family
  • Know their rights
  • Effectively communicate their childrens needs
  • Help their children develop and learn

OSEP Requirement Family Indicator (3-21)
  • Percent of parents with a child receiving
    special education services who report that
    schools facilitated parent involvement as a means
    of improving services and results for children
    with disabilities

State Approaches to Measuring Child Outcomes
  • ECO Family Survey
  • NCSEAM Family Survey
  • State-developed Family Survey
  • Combination

13
States Reporting of Data
  • States submit these data (and other data) to OSEP
    annually in the SPP/APR
  • SPP State Performance Plan
  • APR Annual Performance Report

14
States Reporting of Data
  • Feb 2007 1st reported entry data
  • Feb 2008 1st reported progress data
  • Feb 2009 2nd year of progress data
  • Feb 2010 establish baseline

15
Work of the ECO Center
  • After reporting requirements released, ECO
    focused on helping states build measurement
    systems to collect the data
  • Continued to work with OSEP as issues related to
    data collection were uncovered (e.g., FAQs)
