  • #babyIDEAis30

    This October marks the 30th Anniversary of the passage of Public Law 99-457, which established Part C and mandated Part B, Section 619 of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Throughout the week of October 3-7, 2016, OSEP will run a campaign showcasing many perspectives from the field, including researchers, families, practitioners, and even individuals who participated in early childhood services through Part C and Part B, Section 619 Preschool. Participate in the social media campaign by following @OSERS and posting your stories about the impacts of this law on Facebook Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube using the hashtag #babyIDEAis30.

  • Building Capacity to Use Linked Early Childhood Data

    This project was funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to build the capacity of early care and education programs to use linked administrative data for program improvement and research purposes. The Building Capacity to Use Linked Data project developed several short, easy-to-read briefs and case studies to help program leaders work toward linking their data with data from other agencies and use these data to improve quality of services for children and families.
