This Washington State Education Research and Data Center (ERDC) report profiled ESIT services recipients by demographic characteristics, eligible reason, services received and outcomes. Secondly, we captured the growing trends of participation of ESIT program over time. We also described the critical steps children go through in ESIT program, including referral, evaluation, service plan development and review, outcome and transition out of the program.
