The Outcomes team of the ECTA Center provides national leadership in assisting states with the implementation of high-quality child and family outcomes measurement for early intervention (EI) and early childhood special education (ECSE) programs. This section of the ECTA Center website provides child and family outcomes measurement resources for state and local administrators, technical assistance providers, teachers and service providers, and families.

Our team provides technical assistance, creates and disseminates professional development resources, and supports the integration of outcomes measurement across other aspects of EI and ECSE programs for all states and jurisdictions. Most of the staff on the ECTA Center Outcomes team previously worked for the Early Childhood Outcomes (ECO) Center, which was funded from 2003 to 2013.
