Improving Systems, Practices, and Outcomes

Part C National Program Data

Section 618 Data

Section 618 of IDEA requires states to submit data about infants and toddlers who receive early intervention services under Part C (number and percentage of children served by race, gender, and ethnicity; settings for services; numbers of and reasons for children exiting services; disability categories, and more).

OSEP's Section 618 Data Products include the most current State Level Static Data Tables, current and past State Level Data Files, and related data products.


Child and Family Outcomes Data

States report outcomes data for children and families receiving Part C services on their Annual Performance Reports (APRs). National child and family outcomes data for Part C can be found in the annual Part C APR Indicator Analyses reports (see Indicators C3 and C4). Highlights from the most recent APR data analyses are also available on the Outcomes section of our website.

Part C Child Count data is reported as the number of infants and toddlers receiving services on a specific state-designated date between October 1-December 1 of the Federal fiscal year (FFY). The FFY runs from October 1-September 30. This means, for example, that FFY 2013 child count data is from the Fall of 2012. The table below shows Part C Federal Appropriations and Child Count Data starting from 1987-present.
