Early Childhood Outcome CenterSource: Early Childhood Outcomes Center – July 27, 2012

The Early Childhood Outcomes Center, funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), recently published a summary of outcomes data for young children with delays or disabilities who received services under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) in 2010–11.

The summary shows that between 68% and 73% of children birth through age 2 showed greater than expected growth across three outcomes (social relationships, knowledge and skills, action to meet needs) and 81% of children aged 3 through 5 showed greater than expected growth across the three outcomes. For more findings, see Outcomes for Children Served Through IDEA’s Early Childhood Programs: 2010–11 (July 2012).
