Global Child Outcomes

This module is recommended for all ECI staff.

The Global Child Outcomes module is designed to help ECI service providers:

  • Understand the three global child outcomes
  • Assess children for functional skills associated with each outcome
  • Accurately assign and document ratings for each outcome

The module is designed with the learner’s needs in mind. Key features include:

  • Learning objectives that integrate knowledge with on-the-job skills
  • Frequent opportunities for review/recall and guided practice in realistic scenarios
  • Input from program personnel to ensure relevance and increase learning transfer

The module culminates with the opportunity to conduct a complete child outcomes summary process. Given detailed information about a child from multiple sources, staff are challenged to assign ratings, explain the ratings to parents, and accurately complete the child outcomes summary form.
