Reports & Data

Reports to the Public

Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires states to provide an annual report to the public about the performance of early intervention service (EIS programs) compared to the state’s performance on indicator targets. In Tennessee, EIS programs are defined as the nine TEIS point of entry offices. These offices employ state personnel who oversee referrals from entry into the system through the exit from the system.  Responsibilities include eligibility determination and for eligible children, the coordination of the following activities: development of an individual family service plan (IFSP), coordination of early intervention service delivery specified by the IFSP, and transition planning as the child nears age three.


Annual Performance Reports

The Annual Performance Report is a federal report to the Office of Special Education Program (OSEP) on the performance of the state’s early intervention program on several compliances and results indicators of quality.

 


State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP) Reports

The State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP) is a multi-year plan for improving results for children with disabilities served by the earlyintervention program. The results must be measurable at both an individual
child/family level and programmatically. The annual SSIP reports outline the state’s progress in implementing the plan. 


Rank Order Data

The Rank Order reports provide an annual snapshot of the number of infants/toddlers with Individualized Family Service Plans (IFSPs) in each county of the state on December 1st. These reports compare the percent of the population with IFSPs in each county to the state average and the national average. Two reports are available annually, one listing children ages birth to one and the other listing children ages birth to three.
