Abstract: 

Presented at the 2013 Improving Data, Improving Outcomes Conference. This session offered participants an opportunity to learn about resources for communicating with families through multiple stages of their participation in Part C and 619 programs. Several resources were spotlighted, including a new ECO webpage and samples of family-produced digital stories. Discussion centered on resources needed to improve family participation in outcomes measurement, such as sharing child assessment and program data back with families, gathering meaningful family input, and more.
