2. Individual Family Service Plans (IFSP)

  • The IFSP is for infants and toddlers from birth through age two who are experiencing developmental delays or who have a diagnosed physical or mental condition that may result in development delay. When possible and appropriate, services must be provided in natural environments, including the home, community settings and settings that are normal for children of the same age without disabilities. Family participate is an integral part of early intervention services.

  • IFSP progress is evaluated annually. Evaluations involve a number of people working with the child. The results of the evaluation, along with any other available information from the ongoing assessment with the child and family, are used to determine which services are needed and provided. Reviews of the IFSP can be conducted more often if necessary or if requested by the family.
