Abstract: 

Presented at the 2008 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference. 

A combination presentation-working discussion session focused on aligning state early learning guidelines and assessment measures with OSEP outcomes. Bringing these elements into alignment strengthens intervention/assessment practices and can support efforts to better manage the overall process. Participants explored how one state brought these three elements into alignment. Participants worked through a hands-on activity to understand the alignment process and come away with a usable framework.
