Recently, I spent a few days with data do-gooders from across the country at the KIDS COUNT network data conference. It was amazing to be with so many child advocates discussing how to strengthen our collective work as a network. At a plenary session on the “War on Poverty,” I was shocked to discover how little has changed since the start of the national “War on Poverty” 50 years ago.

Early intervention is a “comprehensive, coordinated, multidisciplinary system that provides early intervention therapeutic and other services for infants and toddlers with disabilities and developmental delays and their families.” These services can put children with developmental delays on the path to better outcomes in multiple areas of their development, including school readiness, and decrease the need for special education intervention services later in life.

The 2014 Ward Snapshots provide us with updated numbers on child well-being indicators for DC and its eight Wards. It is encouraging to see that changes on most of the indicators are positive for DC children.
