The presentation shares information on the data linkages that Alaska and Colorado implemented between Child Welfare and Part C Early Intervention (EI), which resulted in improved EI service access among maltreated infants/toddlers. Information on the linkages and their impact on EI referral, eligibility evaluation, eligibility determination, enrollment, and retention indicate gains and remaining gaps.
