Early Intervention via Child and Family Connections of Access Services of Northern Illinois
The Early Intervention program in Illinois is for families with infants or toddlers, age birth to 36 months, who have concerns about how their child is developing. A caring and knowledgeable Service Coordinator will meet with the family to explain parents’ rights, and help to determine what evaluations and assessments will be provided by qualified professionals at no cost to the family. If services are recommended, staff will assist in developing an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) that will link the family to providers and supports they choose to help their child learn and grow.
