IGDI Reports

There are a variety of reports available for users of the Child Data System. Click on the links to learn more and view a sample report.

  • Individual Child Report: Entering a child’s communication events into the Child Data System allows you to track that child’s communication growth relative to normative growth trajectories using this report.
  • Full Program Report: Program Directors can track the overall communication growth of all the children in their program using this report. It also identifies specific children who are falling at least 1 standard deviation below norms, providing information about their IFSP, interventions, and whether or not they are receiving more frequent ECI assessments for progress monitoring.
    Program reports can also be customized for occasions when you only want a report of a specific subset of you children (e.g., only male children, two years old, in Spanish-speaking homes with IFSPs).
  • Full Project Report: This report has the same characteristics of the Program Report, except that it includes children across all programs within a single project.
  • OSEP Report : As part of their Annual Performance Report, states are now required to report on the progress of their children served by Part C and Part B. The IGDI’s for Infants and Toddlers can be used to prepare the annual OSEP (Office of Special Education Programs) report. The IGDI OSEP Report converts data entered into the system into scores that can be used in this annual report. Refer to the ECATACenter.org website for more information about OSEP reporting.

All reports are dynamically generated, meaning that they always contain the most recently updated data. Details about these reports, including sample reports, are provided below. All sample reports open in a new window.
