Measuring Child Outcomes

For children with disabilities, measuring and reporting outcomes is vital to promoting high-quality Early Intervention (EI) and Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) services.

The process of gathering information, tracking progress and using data to analyze program effectiveness is key to understanding whether children with disabilities have benefited from the services provided to them. The Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), within the U.S. Department of Education, requires that outcomes are reported annually for all children receiving EI and ECSE services.
