To qualify for services, a child must have a significant developmental delay or disability that meets Oregon eligibility guidelines related to speech and language, motor, social-emotional, learning, vision, or hearing.
Services are at no cost to the family. Referrals for evaluations and/or services can be made by a parent, physician, preschool staff, childcare providers, nurses, family members or anyone concerned about a child’s development.
The Early Intervention/Early Childhood Special Education (EI/ECSE) program provides services for children from newborn to five years of age. If a child is determined eligible to receive services, an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) is developed by the family and the education team. This plan is based on the child’s individual strengths, needs and goals. Services are designed to support learning and development, and include the parents as important partners in the education process.
