Abstract: 

Presented at the 2011 Measuring Child and Family Outcomes Conference. In this session, the presenters brought together ideas about program quality from the general early childhood field (i.e., QRIS) with ideas about measuring child outcomes from early intervention and early childhood special education. Through presentation and interactive discussion, the session provided an overview of QRIS quality standards, and discuss the implications for identifying high-quality early care with inclusion of children with disabilities. Representatives from Delaware ECE and ECSE talked about how they successfully worked together on the QRIS efforts and the benefits and challenges they have experienced.
