Early Childhood Special Education

Last Updated: 11/15/2019 7:25 PM

Opportunities for preschool children with disabilities to participate in all early childhood settings are increased through collaboration and information sharing between early childhood programs focusing on inclusive practices. The consultants from the State Support Team Region 4 partner with districts and agencies to build internal capacity by providing professional development, coaching and technical assistance to teachers, assistants, administrators, and related service providers.

Child Outcome Summary Process
Under IDEA 2004, states report prescribed information to the Office of Special Education Programs in the U. S. Department of Education. The reporting requirements are directly linked to a preschool special education performance measure. The data is intended to identify trends in how preschool children with disabilities make progress in relationship to same-aged, typically developing peers. Programs address this requirement through the combination of state and local assessments summarized through the Child Outcomes Process and documented on Ohio’s Child Outcomes Summary Form. State Support Team 4 provides training and technical assistance on the completion, use, and quality assurance of the Child Outcome Summary process.
