1 WEB IEP FOLLOW-UP ECO GATHERED FOR BIRTH TO 5 INCLUDING INFANT, TODDLER, PK 1

2 OVERVIEW  Why collect Early Childhood Outcomes data?  Understanding Early Childhood Outcomes  Measuring Children’s Accomplishments of the 3 Early Childhood Outcomes  Using the Early Childhood Outcomes Summary Form  What does our data tell us? 2

3 ECO: TARGET POPULATION Early ACCESS Infants and Toddlers All infants and toddlers that have an IFSP Include children when transitioning at the age of 3 Early Childhood Special Education Preschoolers All preschool children that have an IEP Include children when transitioning from ECSE services to kindergarten Include children receiving ECSE services and Kindergarten services (Part Time/Part-Time) Does NOT include children that begin receiving special education services in kindergarten 3

4 THREE EARLY CHILDHOOD OUTCOME (ECO) AREAS Children with IFSP/IEP who demonstrate improved: A.Positive social-emotional skills (including social relationships) B.Acquisition and use of knowledge and skills (including early language/literacy/communication) C.Use of appropriate behaviors to meet their needs 4

5 THE 3 ECO AREAS REFER TO THE ‘WHOLE CHILD’ Represent Critical Skills that:  Promote positive outcomes for young children  Support active and successful participation in everyday activities and routines, now and in the future  Integrate all areas of development  Prepare children to enter school ready to learn at high levels (The Essential Question) 5

6 WHAT IS THE EARLY CHILDHOOD OUTCOMES (ECO) PROCESS?  A team process for reviewing child assessment data from different sources culminating in the ‘rating’ of a child’s functioning on a scale of 1-7  Considers the child’s functioning across situations and settings  Compares child’s functioning to same age peers 6

7 TWO ECO SUMMARY QUESTIONS Comparison to peers or standards: To what extent does this child show age-appropriate functioning in this ECO Area across a variety of settings and situations? (Rating: 1-7) Progress: Has the child shown any new skills or behaviors related to this ECO Area since the last IFSP/IEP meeting? (Yes-No) 7

13 THE ECO SUMMARY FORM When do Teams complete the ECO Summary Form?  Initial IFSP and IEP Meetings  Annual Review, Re-Evaluation, and Exit Meetings  Must complete when children are leaving or exiting services  Transition from Early ACCESS to ECSE  **Please note when transitioning from IFSP to IEP, the ECO ratings (1-7), should be the same number for both the Final IFSP exit ECO and Initial IEP ECO  **For TK kids – check with district to see if they are considered preschool or Kindergarten  Transition from ECSE to Kindergarten 13

14 WHEN MUST AN ECO SUMMARY BE COMPLETED FOR AN IEP? When children…  Receive ECSE instructional and/or support only services (e.g. speech)  Receive special education services in BOTH the ECSE setting and Kindergarten setting  Transition from ECSE to kindergarten setting  Move out of state or exit ECSE services 14

15 THE ECO SUMMARY FORM, CONT.  Child’s Ratings are a snapshot of  The whole child  Functioning  Across settings and situations  Rather than  Skill by skill,  In one standardized way, or  Split by domains 15
