If the Grads360 system accommodated children with no consented services listed in the IFSP, and not attributable to service delays, as well as children who predominately received services in home or community-based settings, Illinois' percentage would be 99.05%%.

This is calculated using a combination of data sources including, the Cornerstone data system and the Service Delay Reporting System. This identified that 20,926 infant and toddlers with active IFSPs (per 618 Child Count data), minus 435 infant and toddlers (reported having a service delay), minus 2,307 infant and toddlers (active IFSPs with no authorized services), determined the denominator of 18,619 infant and toddlers with direct service (DS) authorizations.

To determine the numerator, Illinois took 18,443 infants and toddlers (receiving services in the home or community-based settings) and then divided that number by 18,619 (infant and toddlers with DS authorizations) multiplied by 100 to reach 99.05 %, the total number of infant and toddlers receiving services in the home or community-based settings.

Illinois calculated this Indicator using a monthly report produced by the EI CBO for services provided predominately in the home or community-based settings. The report reflects the settings for services that have been authorized. The percentage of infants and toddlers receiving services in the natural setting is calculated based on the infants and toddlers receiving services in a month which can be less than the total number of active IFSPs in a month. The IFSP must include a justification when services are authorized in a non-natural setting, along with a plan to transition to a natural setting, when available. This methodology only incorporates authorized services.

Using the Grads360 prepopulated information from the 2014-15 618 Child Count data, 18,443 infants and toddlers with active IFSPs primarily received EI services in the home or community-based settings. The number of children with active IFSPs is 20,926. The percentage of children receiving services in the home or community-based settings is 88.13%. The attached chart reflects the calculation based on Grads360 prepopulated data.
