As of November 1, 2013, the Early Childhood Outcomes (ECO) Center's mission, staff, and resources have become part of the Early Childhood Technical Assistance (ECTA) Center.
This video describes and illustrates the three child outcomes adopted by the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) and reported on by all state early intervention (Part C) and preschool special education (Part B/619) programs as part of their Annual Performance Report (APR).
This video offers a consistent way to describe the outcome areas across programs and states. It can be used to provide an overview to the three outcomes for professional development and training, orienting families, and introducing the outcomes to other constituents such as policymakers or funders. The video explains functioning necessary for each child to be an active and successful participant at home, in the community, and in other places like a child care program or preschool.
The video is a collaborative presentation of Results Matter, Colorado Department of Education, the Desired Results access Project, Napa County Office of Education, funded by the California Department of Education, Special Education Division, and the Early Childhood Outcomes Center, funded by the Office of Special Education Programs.
