State Self-Assessment

Infant Toddler State Self-Assessment

Oregon’s Infant Toddler State Self-Assessment

The Oregon Early Learning Division is working with the Oregon Health Authority and other partners across the state to conduct an assessment of infant and toddler policies, funding, and services. The three-part assessment is based on the Infants and Toddlers in the Policy Picture: Self-Assessment Toolkit for States created by the Zero to Three® Policy Center.

Results of the assessment will inform actions to build a stronger system of support in Oregon that honors the needs and choices of families with young children. A final summary of the assessment findings will be shared widely.

How to get involved

Parent and provider participation and feedback are crucial for the success of this project. We want to learn from parents about the experiences they want for their infants and toddlers, and what it is like to access and participate in supports and services for children ages birth to two years-old. We also want to hear from providers who serve these families about their experiences. There are several ways to get involved and share your experience:

Focus groups: Would you like to help recruit and host a focus group with the parents you serve, so their voice and experiences of raising an infant or toddler are included? Please respond by November 30, 2017.

Outreach and work groups: Are you interested in helping with outreach or participating in a work group? We welcome your expertise and help with outreach.

Online Survey: Would you like to complete an online survey to share your thoughts and/or promote an online survey for parents, providers and partners? The survey will help us gather additional feedback about Oregon parent experiences and infant toddler services?
