OSEP supports States and IDEA discretionary grant investments to improve results for children with disabilities and their families. Effectively sharing and communicating the positive outcomes of such efforts to meet the information needs of different audiences is often challenging. OSEP’s third symposium in the 2017 Symposia Series, “Conveying Our Stories--Displaying Our Data,” focused on how States, districts, and Part D-funded investments can develop engaging stories and effectively use data to improve communication strategies used with stakeholders, leadership, and decision makers. The symposium explored best practices and tips for more impactful and effective communication efforts.
- Information on building an effective dissemination plan; and
- Using infographics and data visualization practices to communicate the meaning of data in a way that is accessible, accurate, and actionable for a variety of stakeholders.
- Using social media to improve outreach, and
- Measuring success using analytic tools.
