Provision of Early Intervention Services for Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities and their Families

The Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) at the U.S. Department of Education has released yet another guidance in its Return to School Roadmap series--this one is called Provision of Early Intervention Services for Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities and their Families under Part C of IDEA. The 11-page document focuses on the development and implementation of Individualized Family Service Plans (IFSP), the written plan for providing early intervention services to an infant or toddler with a disability and the child’s family. The questions and answers addressed are intended to provide guidance and to identify the relevant requirements and options for flexibility for the State lead agencies (LA) and EIS providers when faced with unprecedented programmatic circumstances resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Read more about this Q&A, see a list of the questions addressed, and connect with this and other guidances in OSERS' Return to School roadmap series here, at CPIR.

Webinars

Webinar | Development and Implementation of IEPs

In this webinar for Parent Centers, important guidance from the U.S. Department of Education is shared. Content is focused explicitly and in detail on the development of IEPs as students return to school. Revisions to a student's IEP may be crucial, given changes that may have occurred in the social, emotional, mental, and behavioral well-being of the child during the pandemic. Students may need to reevaluated to determine what their current needs are, so these can be addressed in their IEPs. Much discussion centered around compensatory services: what they are, when and how schools should determine whether a student needs such services, and more.
