PPCD/SPP 7

Preschool Programs for Children with Disabilities provides training and technical assistance for teachers of students with disabilities ages 3-5 years (birth - 5 years for students with visual and/or hearing impairments). Training and technical assistance are available in the developmentally appropriate practices for young children with disabilities.
State Performance Plan (SPP) Indicator 7
Early Childhood Outcomes
Beginning with the fall of 2007, all school districts in the state of Texas must complete a Child Outcomes Summary Form (COSF) for every preschool child (age 3-5 yr) who qualifies for special education services. This is in accordance with State Performance Plan Indicator #7 (also known as Early Childhood Outcomes). School district staff must be trained to complete the COSF which assigns a rating of 1-7 for each child compared to typically developing peers in three outcome areas. This data will be submitted to the Texas Education through an online data collection system (TEASE).
School districts/charters are encouraged to send appropriate staff (PPCD teachers, speech therapists and any other special education personnel) to training in order to be prepared to submit entry and exit data to the Texas Education Agency.
