Child Outcomes Summary Process in the EIP – 4 hours (0.4 CEUs)

The focus of this training is on the Child Outcomes Summary (COS) Process.


The Child Outcomes Summary Process is required by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), which oversees the State’s implementation of Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). All counties in NYS participate in the Child Outcomes Summary Process, therefore, all EIP municipal staff and providers must understand this process.


The first portion of the course is an adaptation of a training developed by the Early Childhood Technical Assistance Center (ECTA) and the Center for IDEA Early Childhood Data Systems (DaSy). The second portion of the course provides valuable information on the Child Outcomes Summary Process specific to New York State.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of: 

  • The three Child Outcomes

  • Why Child Outcomes data are collected

  • The key features of a quality COS process

  • When to complete the COS process

  • How the 7-point scale is related to age-expected functioning and the specific criteria associated with each of the 7-points on the COS rating scale

  • How to use the decision tree, a tool to help distinguish between the ratings

  • How to determine ratings for children with special circumstances

  • Effective COS teaming practices

  • The features of effective COS documentation

  • How to select COS ratings at exit

  • How to answer the COS “progress question”


Participants who successfully complete this course will earn 4 professional development hours, which can be used one time only towards the annual professional development requirements as outlined in the New York State Department of Health Bureau of Early Intervention Provider Agreement. Additionally, 0.4 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are awarded with full completion of this course (4 contact hours/0.4 credits).
