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.
