How are States Using Part C to Support the Socio-emotional Development of Childen?

The National Center for Children in Poverty has issued a new 50 state report on the implementation of IDEA's Part C early intervention services.
Research shows that only a fraction of children eligible for the program received services. The aim of this brief was to determine how states leveraged different policy choices to support integration of social-emotional developmental strategies into early intervention services. Forty-eight states’ Part C coordinators participated in the study. They reported on their states’ efforts to support screening, referral and evaluation; strategies that are part of the array of early intervention service continuum covered by the Part C program; services and supports to children who are at risk and who are not eligible for Part C; and coordination and leadership.
For policies to increase academic success through Part C implementation.
