P oints we’re going to cover in this webinar What’s different, what’s the same? Let’s dig in and see.
The new form has 5 parts: Section I Contacts Section II Unduplicated Parent Count Section III Demographic Information (including federal disability categories) Section IV Meetings Attended Section V Outreach and Dissemination
Section II—Unduplicated Parent Count 10 Unduplicated count of parents Count only the actual number of individual parents served during the reporting period. The same parent may have participated in a number of workshops and received individual assistance multiple times; but for this data point, count each parent only one time. Example: If Jane Smith attended 5 trainings, called the center 10 times, and was supported in 1 IEP meeting and 1 mediation, she would only be counted as one (1) parent served.
Section V—Outreach & Dissemination V. OUTREACH AND DISSEMINATION
