Abstract: 

Presented at the 2009 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference.

Hear how three programs are integrating IFSP/IEP and Child Outcomes Summary Form (COSF) measurement processes. Presenters shared changes their early intervention/preschool programs have made in assessment and IFSP/IEP development practices to align them with outcomes measurement. Presenters also described implementation issues (challenges and solutions), presented implementation tools used by these programs, and shared quality assurance strategies that have helped these programs integrate outcomes measurement into their existing IFSP/IEP processes.
