Abstract: 

Presented at the 2008 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference.

Hear how two programs are integrating IFSP and Child Outcome Summary Form (COSF) measurement processes. Presenters shared changes their early intervention programs have made in assessment and IFSP development practices to align them with outcomes measurement. Strategies include organizing present levels of development by outcome area, using Routines-Based Interview data, and determining current level of functioning with families. Presenters also discussed factors that influenced change, pros and cons, and how the IFSP and outcomes measurement can ultimately complement one another.

Abstract: 

Presented at the 2011 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference. The presenters shared a brief summary of a study done in Texas to better understand the type and amount of services recommended for IFSPs. The session provided opportunities for participants to discuss such questions as: In times of economic pressures, how much and what kinds of services are "enough" to make a difference? How will you know? What are implications for data analyses, policies, and guidance?
