Taking the Plunge: First Steps to Integrating Child Outcomes into the IFSP/IEP Process

Abstract: 

Presented at the 2012 Measuring and Improving Child and Family Outcomes Conference. Using the first two stages of implementation science (exploration and installation) as a framework, three states shared their approaches to "getting started" with an integrated IFSP-IEP process. Combining the processes has been found to lead to improved data collection, streamlined and efficient paperwork, and more effective individualized child and family service planning.

Plenary Follow-Up: Integrating Outcomes Measurement with IFSP and IEP Processes

Abstract: 

Presented at the 2010 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference.  A follow-up to the plenary on this topic, this session featured tools and resources that can help people integrate IFSP and IEP processes with the measurement of child and family outcomes. Presentations about the groundbreaking work of local programs and the strategies they are using to sustain the integration of IFSP/IEP and outcomes measurement processes were included. Presenters also shared activities for introducing and adopting an integrated approach.

Pacific TA Meeting: Quality Practices in Early Intervention and Preschool Programs

Abstract: 

Presented at the 2008 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference.

New products and processes from three states using the Child Outcomes Summary (COS) process. Presenters from North Carolina shared a written child example used in training for differentiating among the three outcomes and matching skills and behaviors with age expectations. Participants learned about North Dakota's guidance document for measuring child outcomes, as well as the training that accompanies the document. Presenters from Illinois shared videos that demonstrate the integration of the IFSP and Child Outcomes Summary (COS) processes.

Abstract: 

Presented at the 2009 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference.

Hear how three programs are integrating IFSP/IEP and Child Outcomes Summary Form (COSF) measurement processes. Presenters shared changes their early intervention/preschool programs have made in assessment and IFSP/IEP development practices to align them with outcomes measurement. Presenters also described implementation issues (challenges and solutions), presented implementation tools used by these programs, and shared quality assurance strategies that have helped these programs integrate outcomes measurement into their existing IFSP/IEP processes.

Key Considerations for Implementing the Integration of Child Outcomes Measurement into the IFSP/IEP Process

Type: 
Conference Session
Author/Presenter: 

Megan Vinh and Kathi Gillaspy

Year: 
2012
Abstract: 

The presenters led a discussion of key considerations for integrating the early childhood outcomes measurement into the Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP)/Individualized Educational Program (IEP) process. A panel of Part C and Section 619 program representatives, all in different stages of integrating outcomes, provided information and resources related to their experiences with the integration process. Presenters also shared tools and resources related to the key considerations for implementing an integrated process of child outcomes measurement and IFSP/IEP development.

Year: 
2011
Abstract: 

Presented at the 2011 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference. Is your child outcome measurement process a separate activity from developing your IFSPs or IEPs? Are you looking for strategies to link child outcome measurement with functional assessment conducted for IFSP/IEP development and developing meaningful IFSP outcomes/IEP goals? In this 3 hour workshop, states shared tools and resources they have used in integrating these activities. Participants had the opportunity to use several of these strategies to help you analyze their own state's activities and discussed how best to implement an integrated approach.

Integrating Outcomes Measurement with IFSP and IEP Processes (2010)

Abstract: 

Presented at the 2010 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference.

States and local programs are making child and family outcomes measurement more efficient and more effective by integrating those processes with IFSP and IEP development and implementation. Presenters shared a generic flow chart of integrated process and describe variations as implemented at State and local levels.

Abstract: 

Presented at the 2011 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference. States and local programs are making child and family outcomes measurement more efficient and more effective by integrating those processes with the development of functional IFSPs and IEPs. In this session, several states shared the flow of activities that integrates processes.
