Child Outcomes Step by Step

The Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) has adopted a set of three child outcomes. These outcomes address three areas of child 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. All State early intervention (Part C) and preschool special education (Part B/619) programs report on the progress that they make each year toward these outcomes as one part of their Annual Performance Report (APR). This video describes and illustrates the three child outcomes. This 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.
