Understanding, collecting, analyzing, and using family outcomes data is essential for building inclusive and equitable early intervention programs. States use surveys to collect family outcomes data, yet low response rates and lack of representativeness contribute to biased results. This in turn hinders the ability to turn the data into quality information essential for understanding family outcomes and making system changes to improve outcomes. This session addressed strategies for improving survey methodology for collecting family outcome survey data that yield quality data for making informed program decisions for ALL families across dimensions of diversity.
