Abstract: 

Presented at the 2009 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference.

As the OSEP-reported child outcomes data are reported and made public, many of us will be called upon to communicate with the media and the public about what these data are, why they are being collected, and what they mean. In this workshop, strategies and approaches for crafting messages about the child outcomes reporting and the child outcomes summary statements were presented and discussed. Several hands-on activities allowed participants to (a) anticipate quesitons they may receive and (b) prepare a media release about the child outcomes data and what they mean about the EI and ECSE programs serving infants, toddlers, and preschoolers with disabilities.
