Did you know...

the document some of our Parent Contacts reviewed has been published? The EIPLP got feedback from some of our Parent Contacts earlier this year about a flyer we were working  for new families in EI. The goal was to help families better understand how services are delivered. This is available on the EIPLP website, and is available for all 60 EI programs to share with families. Thank you to all of those that provided feedback! We will let you know about other opportunities like this in the future.

Did you know...?

The Massachusetts Early Intervention System is a statewide integrated system of developmental services and supports available to eligible children ages birth to three and their families. 
  
We love that you are here!

Parent Contacts are an important part of the Massachusetts Early Intervention System. Parent Contacts are parents and guardians of children currently receiving EI services who volunteer to receive information from the EIPLP and share it with other families. If your child is no longer receiving services, or you no longer wish to be the Parent Contact for your EI program, please let us know by calling 
1-877-353-4757 or emailing eiplp@live.com so that we can identify another family from your program.
