Measuring Child Outcomes with the Summary of Functional Performance: An Introduction

Type: 
Training Resource
Author/Presenter: 

Kathy Hebbeler

Year: 
2011
Abstract: 

This presentation and materials are from a one-day training on the Child Outcomes Summary (COS) process. The audience for the training was early intervention providers in King County, Washington. Washington State has implemented a new process which integrates the outcomes rating process into the IFSP and uses "descriptor statements" for the rating. The state also has a new data system for capturing a narrative summary of the child's functioning along with the descriptor statement. The training addresses general principles involved in the COS process along with features unique to Washington's revised approach to incorporating the information into the development of the IFSP. Links to handouts and activities used in the training that are on the ECO web site are in the notes section of the appropriate slide in the presentation.
