CHILD & FAMILY CONNECTIONS (CFC)

Who is on Your Child's Team?

The first person you will need is your service coordinator. He or she will talk with you about your concerns about your child's development, and guide you in the next steps of the program.

Your EI service coordinator has the following responsibilities:

  • Serve as the first point of contact in the EI system

  • Coordinate evaluations to determine eligibility for services

  • Help families understand their roles and legal rights in the EI system

  • Assist the family and other EI team members in developing and implementing the IFSP

  • Contact the family monthly while the child is in EI

  • Develop and maintain the case record for the child and family

  • Assist the families with transitioning at the age of three to school district services if eligible or other community resources.

Parent Liaison services are provided by parents of children with disabilities or delays who have experienced the Early Intervention system.  The position was designed with you, the parent, in mind.  Parent Liaison services are provided at no cost to families.
