Abstract: 

Presented at the 2008 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference.

New products and processes from three states using the Child Outcomes Summary (COS) process. Presenters from North Carolina shared a written child example used in training for differentiating among the three outcomes and matching skills and behaviors with age expectations. Participants learned about North Dakota's guidance document for measuring child outcomes, as well as the training that accompanies the document. Presenters from Illinois shared videos that demonstrate the integration of the IFSP and Child Outcomes Summary (COS) processes.
