Helping families support their child's early learning and skill development

The Process

About Early Intervention

A multidisciplinary team of early intervention professionals partners with the family to determine areas of concern and the supports needed to reach functional child outcomes on the Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP). The IFSP addresses the documented area(s) of delay, functional status and needs as well as strengths, and outlines appropriate EI services and frequency, duration, intensity, and location for provision.

These Services are:

  • Voluntary on the part of the family

  • Individualized to meet the needs of the child and the goals and priorities of the family

  • Provided by qualified professionals who meet state licensing requirements
