Developing the State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP) offers the opportunity to engage an array of stakeholders in planning, implementing, measuring, and celebrating improvements in the services states provide for young children and their families. States can communicate their progress and plans on the SSIP in an infographic. This guide provides information and tools to help you create infographics to involve stakeholders in SSIP work and gives examples of effective infographics. Infographics translate content and data into messages that diverse audiences can understand. They can be used to build support and generate enthusiasm around SSIP efforts by communicating the state's goals and achievements. Infographics make the information easy for others to consume and share across audiences and networks.
