Colorado Child Identification Process. Birth - Five Years Effectiveness Indicators.
Tesauro-Jackson, Pat; And Others
This set of effectiveness indicators is intended to assist Colorado communities and agencies to evaluate themselves regarding processes for the identification of young children (birth to age 5) with disabilities. First, a statement of values stresses proactivity, family empowerment, and outcome orientation. Specific effectiveness indicators are then presented in a rating chart form. Each indicator and/or sub-indicator is considered in terms of present status, evaluation, needs, and action plans. The indicators address interagency collaboration (15 major indicators), public awareness (10 indicators), referral (13 indicators), screening (12 indicators), the evaluation process (16 indicators), and program evaluation (2 indicators). In addition, lists identify recommended functions and qualifications of the Child Find Coordinator. (DB)
