Narrative Description of Indicator

Based on data provided by OSEP on www.ideadata.org, Maryland provided early intervention services to 3.99% of the 2018 Maryland resident birth to three-year-old population of children and met the State target of providing early intervention services to 3.25% of the Maryland 2018 resident birth to three-year-old population.  Compared to national data, Maryland provided early intervention services to 0.51% more children birth to three years of age than the national baseline and ranked 15th among the 50 States and the U.S territories.

Twenty of Maryland’s 24 LITPs met the State target of 3.25% of the percentage of birth to three-year-old children receiving early intervention services.  Meeting the State target is attributed to State/local targeted public awareness activities, including collaboration with local childcare providers, physicians, hospitals, audiologists, and local departments of social services.  Another contributing factor is increased knowledge of many parents, as a result of popular media activities on the importance of the early childhood years in preparing a child for school.  If the State target was not met, LITPs were required to develop and implement improvement plan strategies and, as necessary, received technical assistance from MSDE.
