What is the State of Illinois Early Intervention (EI) Program?
The State of Illinois Early Intervention (EI) is a government-based program that provides resources and support to families who have children from birth to age three with diagnosed disabilities, developmental delays, and/or children who are considered at-risk. The purpose of EI is to provide services such as therapy, counseling, and education to the young children and their families to prevent further delays as well as to enhance overall growth and development.
Under Illinois state and federal law, children under 36 months who have developmental deficiencies or have a condition or disorder that has a high probability for developmental delay, are eligible for an evaluation and treatment, if necessary, through Illinois Child and Family Connections Program. This program works with families to develop an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) outlining the particular needs of the child and family. To locate the Child and Family Connections office in your area, go to the Illinois Department of Human Services.
