By the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services
WASHINGTON (April 14, 2021) – The Office of Special Education Programs released two new OSEP Fast Facts about IDEA data files and personnel.
The IDEA data files infographic provides an overview of 10 data files using 2018-19 and 2019 data released earlier this year.
This data may be “particularly useful when examining changes over time to the number of children with disabilities receiving” IDEA services, according to OSEP.
The personnel infographic provides visualizations of professionals employed or contracted to work with children with disabilities, ages 3 through 21, according to an OSEP blog.
OSEP Fast Facts is an ongoing effort to display data from the 12 data collections authorized under IDEA Section 618 into graphic, visual representations with the intent to present 618 data quickly and clearly.
