Family and Child Outcomes Data: Drill-Down and Linkages

Conference Session

Year:

Abstract: 

Presented at the 2013 Improving Data, Improving Outcomes Conference. Participants reviewed hypothetical state family outcomes data. We began the journey with indicators of data quality including outliers and low response rates. Next we rolled up our sleeves up and dug into the patterns in the family outcomes data, including looking at outcomes by region, race/ethnicity, and home language. Finally, we linked data to examine connections between family outcomes and child outcomes, and discussed implications of analyses for developing targeted data-based improvement activities.

In this session, participants learned about the system framework the ECTA Center is developing to support states in analyzing the capacity of their current Part C and Section 619 systems and building overall quality systems that support implementation of effective practices and ultimately child and family outcomes.

More than Referral: Linkages between Early Intervention and Child Welfare Data and Improved Child Outcomes

Type: 
Conference Session
Author/Presenter:

Year:

Abstract: 

Presented at the 2013 Improving Data, Improving Outcomes Conference. Ten years ago states were federally mandated to develop referral policies for maltreated children. Although the mandate focuses on referral, the intent was to improve these children's outcomes. This interactive session presented implementation issues and their implications for state IDEA data systems. Panelists from three states described their states' linkages and discussed how implementation issues have been addressed and how linkages have been (or could be) used to improve child outcomes.

Expanding the National Tool Box for Measuring Part C Participation Rates: Feasibility and Utility of the Birth Cohort Methodology

Type: 
Conference Session
Author/Presenter: 

Donna Noyes (ITCA, NY Part C Coordinator), Maureen Greer (ITCA, Emerald Consulting, DaSy ), Lynne MacLeod (ITCA, UT Part C Data Manager)

Year: 
2013
Abstract: 

Presented at the 2013 Improving Data, Improving Outcomes Conference. Part C single-day and cumulative child counts, as specified in Section 618 of the IDEA, do not provide a complete picture of the number of children birth through age two who are referred to, evaluated for, and receive early intervention services. The Infant and Toddler Coordinators (ITCA) Data Committee presented progress in its examination of the viability of using a birth cohort methodology as another measure of Part C participation and solicited feedback from attendees.
