We invite Illinois Early Childhood Professionals who work with students receiving Special Education Services to come together and share ideas and practices on how to support the Early Childhood Outcomes process. This ECO CoP is specifically for practitioners who have been active participants in the ECO process. It is highly suggested that you have participated in a training on ECO prior to your participation in this ECO CoP. It is an opportunity to deepen our understanding of the ECO process and build higher levels of reliability across Illinois. Together we will determine what topics of investigation and discussion will be addressed in this CoP. Topics could include utilization of the decision tree, using our authentic assessment tool to help inform ECO ratings, engaging in problem solving techniques when difficult conversations occur, using ECO ratings for program improvement, and other key ECO factors. Are you looking for a training on Early Childhood Outcomes in Illinois? This Illinois Early Childhood Outcome Community of Practice (ECO CoP) is not a training on Early Childhood Outcomes.
