Child Outcomes Summary Team Collaboration (COS-TC) Quality Practices

Checklist and Descriptions

The Child Outcomes Summary Team Collaboration (COS-TC) Quality Practices Checklist and Descriptions is designed to assist states and programs in improving COS team collaboration. Built around a set of quality practices, the checklist is a mechanism for those who implement, supervise, or train on the COS process to identify, observe, and assess recommended team collaboration practices in COS implementation. It underscores ways to actively engage families as critical members in the COS process. This resource also provides a description of each of the quality practices and two examples of ways to introduce the different COS discussion points with team members.
