Outcomes 101: ECO Q&Areturn to Q&A Home
Q. Are states required to report on a child's progress for any outcome in which the child does not have a delay?
A. Yes. The Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) requires that states provide data on all three outcomes for every child leaving Part C or Part B Preschool services.* Data are required for all outcomes even if there are no concerns about a child's development in an outcome, or if the child has delays only in one or two outcome areas. This includes children receiving only a single service such as speech therapy.
* For states sampling children from their Part C or Part B Preschool population for outcomes reporting, data on all three outcomes must be provided for every child being sampled.
