Early Support for Infants and Toddlers Cost Study Update
BERK was engaged by the Washington State Department of Early Learning (DEL) to conduct a cost study for its Early Support for Infants and Toddlers program. In collaboration with DEL, BERK developed and administered a survey tool for local lead agencies and individual service providers to gather information on expenditures, funding, and service provision. BERK analyzed the survey data and additional information provided by DEL to create an accounting of the full expenditures related to early intervention services in Washington. DEL also requested that BERK review and summarize the results from a survey administered by the Washington State Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction to all public schools.
