This is a common question that data teams face as technology becomes more advanced and the need to answer complex questions increases. Learn about considerations for deciding whether to level up your data system connections through data linking and integration.
The COVID-19 pandemic presented unique challenges for states’ Part C and Part B 619 data collection and reporting. The spring 2021 State of the States survey provides a snapshot of the types of data states and territories were able to collect during the early stage of the pandemic (between late 2020 and early 2021) and how they collected the data. Lessons learned from the pandemic can help states improve data collection around telehealth services and prepare for future data disruptions, such as natural disasters.

The Data Linking and Integration Learning Community will meet monthly to discuss relevant key topics, facilitate in-state and cross-state collaboration and learning, provide strategies and approaches to support states’ challenges, and encourage discussion of critical systems issues relevant to states.
In this webinar for Part C Coordinators, Part C Data Managers, and Part B 619 Coordinators, DaSy shared information about current and upcoming technical assistance opportunities, data-related activities, and supports available for your state’s Part C and Part B 619 programs.
Data linking is often necessary to address critical questions about program quality and to improve results for young children with disabilities and their families. Yet data linking can be challenging. Learn about ways to streamline this process.
DaSy’s State of the States report shows that many early intervention (Part C) and early childhood special education (Part B, 619) state coordinators and data managers are interested in increasing data linking between IDEA programs. We share the story of one state’s journey to link Part C and Part B, 619 data.
During this session, DaSy staff discussed how Part C and Part B program staff can leverage data linking to answer complex questions of interest. The presenters showed and described the new Data Linking Toolkit which is comprised of multiple sections that include downloadable tools to support Part C and Part B 619 program staff as they consider, prepare, and successfully link their data. In addition, North Carolina shared their recent experience linking Part C and Part B 619 data in their state across two state agencies.
This is the last in a series of stand-alone facilitated listening sessions provided by DaSy and ECTA focused on the transition from Part C to Part B, 619. Presenters shared resources and tools that may assist states as they improve their data processes and systems.
