- New Child Find Self-Assessment Tool
The Child Find Self-Assessment (CFSA) is a valuable tool for State IDEA Part C programs to identify strategies to promote efficiency in their child find systems, with the goal of ensuring children eligible for services are referred and enrolled. States can use the CFSA as a monitoring tool to ensure they have met the regulatory components of a comprehensive child find system, and as an informational tool to assist with identification and implementation of best practices for child find.
Developed by the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) with support from the Center for IDEA Early Childhood Data Systems (DaSy) and the Early Childhood Technical Assistance Center (ECTA).

- New interactive resources for child outcomes data
This 2019 online interactive resource offers an easy-to-understand video that explains how the child outcomes data that local programs collect are converted to the national data reported by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP). It also includes a set of calculators to help users explore how the data are converted, as well as helpful related resources.
These interactive resources each include an instructional video, calculators that you can use to convert your own child outcomes data to progress categories and summary statements, plus a set of related resources.
Select the version of the resource most helpful to you based on the approach your state uses to collect child outcomes data:
State uses the Child Outcomes Summary (COS) process
State uses another child outcomes data collection method (e.g., publisher’s online tool) to collect child outcomes data
