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

Type: 
Conference Session
Author/Presenter: 

Taletha Derrington (DaSy), Bruce Sheppard (EI/ECSCE Specialist), Ardith Ferguson (CO Part C Coordinator), Christy Scott, Kenneth Smith

Year: 
2013
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.
