The success of early intervention services is dependent on the use of evidence-based practices and data-based decision making. Data can be used at various levels – individual child, county program, and state program – to inform stakeholders whether or not a particular strategy or approach is effective. This module will describe various types of data relevant to early intervention and the importance of using this data to inform decisions at child and program levels.

These online learning modules are part of the New York State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP), Improving Family Centeredness Together (IFaCT) Project, aimed to improve family-centeredness in the Early Intervention Program. The project is funded by the New York State Department of Health Bureau of Early Intervention.
