The Department of Education Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) has released the first three in a series of resource guides to support access to high-quality Early Intervention Services (EIS) for infants and toddlers with disabilities.
The Vision and Guiding Resources guide provides an overview of the initiative. The Outreach and Family Engagement guide explains the need for outreach and family engagement in the child find process, which locates, identifies, and evaluates infants and toddlers who may benefit from EIS. The Monitoring, Screening, and Referral guide details how health care providers and others working with infants and toddlers regularly monitor and screen children to ensure they meet specific milestones. OSEP will make additional resources in this series available this year.
Separately, OSEP Director Valerie Williams introduced a blog series that will explain topics of interest related to the office’s discipline and behavior guidance package released this past summer.
