    1. Training Strategies and Resources for States Using the Child Outcomes Summary Form Saundra Harrington (VA) Part C Mary Peters (WI) Section 619 Chelsea Guillen (IL) Part C Mary Anketell and Deb Daulton (PA) Birth-5

    2. Each state will describe: • Content and format of their COSF training • How they have ‘rolled-out’ training statewide • Issues, challenges, strategies, and lessons learned

    3. Content and format of COSF training in Virginia • Presentation from State Part C TA Consultant and 2 peer trainers (1 peer trainer consistent at all 8 trainings) • Used 3 case studies to walk through the process • Spent time on typical development expectations

    4. COSF training “roll-out” in Virginia • Held regional trainings across the state • Set the expectation that ALL service providers would attend one of the trainings and if not able, that someone attending the training would ensure they received all the information (trained 400 service providers)

    5. Issues, challenges, strategies, and lessons learned in Virginia • Understanding of typical child development across providers was discouraging • Provided guiding questions and adapted the decision tree with family friendly language to assist with the conversation

    6. Issues, challenges, strategies, and lessons learned in Virginia (continued) • Some localities have adapted the evaluation narrative to move away from the domains and report our results in the functional areas. This has been most helpful

    7. Content and format of COSF training in Wisconsin Training Modules include: • OSEP Child Outcomes: background and understanding the three child outcome areas • Ongoing Child Assessment • Completing the Child Outcome Summary Form • Reporting Child Outcomes • Team Process

    8. COSF training “roll-out” in Wisconsin 2005 Stakeholder meetings and initial training 2005-06 Statewide training for small sample LEAs and counties 2007 Modules and train-the-trainer for Child Outcome facilitators in each region www.collaboratingpartners.com

    9. Issues, challenges, strategies, and lessons learned in Wisconsin • Birth to 6 Child Outcome system [] Separate lead agencies [] Part C = census [] 619 = sample strategy • Building a statewide training/technical assistance network • Building with Wisconsin Model Early Learning Standards training/best practice for on-going assessment • GSEG activities to develop a shared data system

    10. Content and format of COSF training in Illinois • Focus on why and how as well as state-specific requirements • Age-expected development, understanding immediate foundational skills, and how to include families in the discussion • Solicited input from service coordinators about challenges in completing COSF ratings

    11. Content and format of COSF training in Illinois (continued) • Face-to-face training, online training, peer training, case studies • Videos - child-specific and hopefully soon, mock IFSP meeting

    12. COSF training “roll-out” in Illinois • Started with service coordinators using statewide face to face training in March and April 2006 • Online training for providers was available beginning April 2006

    13. COSF training “roll-out” in Illinois (continued) • In May of 2007, we followed up with a train the trainers model that was to include both providers and service coordinators • Information has also been included in the online service coordinator training and the systems overview training for all new service coordinators and providers

    14. Issues, challenges, strategies, and lessons learned in Illinois • Provider training is still optional -- so many have not completed it • Need to increase knowledge of age expected development • Need to develop resources for families • More work remains on how to incorporate ratings into Illinois' IFSP process • Need to provide more sophisticated online training for both SCs and providers

    15. Issues, challenges, strategies, and lessons learned in Illinois (continued) • Concerns with covering all domains adequately when only a single provider is involved • How to meaningfully rate very young children and speech-only kids • Getting all parties involved with the process in a recommended practice kind of way, i.e. incorporating it fully in the IFSP process and including all team members in the discussion

    16. Issues, challenges, strategies, and lessons learned in Illinois (continued) • Biggest challenge is getting everyone to enter data and ensuring consistency • Still working on getting strategies/resources to SCs and providers • Lesson learned -- best trainings include parallels of actual IFSP teams- much better discussions and understanding

    17. Content and format of COSF training in Pennsylvania • Matching 5 developmental domains to 3 child outcomes • Typical child development • Assessment tool training • Web resources for child development information

    18. COSF training “roll-out” in Pennsylvania • State staff identify what programs are involved such as EI, Child Care, Head Start • Participants identified through program supervisors • Complete training sessions • Refresher sessions

    19. COSF training “roll-out” in Pennsylvania (continued) • Use of state TA consultants • Web based registration • Roll out week • Videoconferences • Materials on web

    20. Issues, challenges, strategies, and lessons learned in Pennsylvania • Numbers of staff to train • Do we know how many? • Turn over • Developing the perfect database • Maintaining the level of training support • Roll out with early childhood partners • Explaining progress on the COSF
