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.
