The Oregon Alliance for Early Intervention is an advocacy organization that brings together families with Early Intervention & Early Childhood Special Education professionals from across the state interested in ensuring that adequate funding is available so young children with learning challenges have access to the level of EI/ECSE services they need to be prepared for kindergarten success.

Alliance for Early Intervention 
September 12, 2019
We believe that every child deserves a bright future and understand the impact Early Intervention and Early Childhood Special Education can have in the lives of so many young children and their families across Oregon. 

Join the Alliance at this upcoming training event for those who are interested in continued advocacy efforts to ensure that all children experiencing delays and their families throughout the state can access the EI/ESCE services they need.
Parent Voices Needed on Local Councils 

Local Interagency Coordinating Councils are required by state law to "advise and assist" EI/ECSE Contractors on identification of service needs, coordination with other agency services.  The LICC is intended to gather input from and exchange information with stakeholders on decisions about EI/ECSE services.  LICCs have  tremendous potential to influence local programs and agencies to enhance services for young children with disabilities and their families.  The insight gained from voiced parent perspective can result in  meaningful change, improved services, and expanded collaboration on early childhood services in your community.

If you are interested in helping to guide the direction of EI/ECSE Services in your region, contact us at the Alliance for Early Intervention and we will connect you with the Chair of your Local Interagency Coordinating Council.

Regional Family Networks 

The Oregon Consortium of Family Networks (OCFN) is made up of several regional family networks across the state that connects  families each other and with resources so that they will become  stronger advocates for their children, and active in welcoming local communities. Families are e ncouraged to map out a life for their children and themselves, full of meaningful relationships and experiences.
