Did you know...

there are lots of opportunities coming up for Parent Contacts? In the coming weeks you will receive information on:
  • our next Coffee and Conversation, which will be at the Kennedy Donovan Center in Attleboro on February 22. This is a great chance to meet other Parent Contacts, Parent Liaisons, and EIPLP Staff.
  • a new training we will be offering for parents in EI, and we need your help to plan it- keep an eye out for a brief survey to provide your input!
  • the annual MEIC Conference on May 7 & 8 in Framingham is fast approaching- registration packets will go out at the end of the month. Please let us know whether or not you are interested in attending.

the EIPLP is always looking to help parents get involved (and stay involved) in the MA EI System? if you or someone you know is looking for an opportunity to make a positive impact on the EI System, there's a chart in your Parent Contact Resource Guide that is also available on the EIPLP website under the " Basic Information for Families" tab. Let us know if you see something that sounds interesting, and we can give you more information and help you get started! Send us an email to eiplp@live.com or call 1-877-353-4757.

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.
