The EIPLP sponsors a parent or caregiver from each of the 60 EI programs in the state to attend the Massachusetts Early Intervention Consortium (MEIC) Conference? Registration materials will be going out this month, so keep an eye on your mailbox. We will also be posting information in the EIPLP Parent Contact Facebook Group- if you aren't a member, please join us for updates! Workshops fill up fast for this conference, so let us know ASAP if you are planning on attending on May 4th and 5th! You won't want to miss this opportunity to learn, network, and recharge for a couple of days with other EI parents and providers. The EIPLP will pay for the registration and hotel stay, and will include meals for parents that represent their EI programs and register through us.  Call 877-353-4757 or  email Liz with any questions.

March is a NCSEAM Family Survey month? If you didn't receive a survey in October, ask your Service Coordinator if you will be receiving one this month! Family feedback on these surveys helps the Department of Public Health know how families feel about the following:
  • I can help my child develop and learn
  • I know my rights
  • I can effectively communicate my child's needs 
The survey is anonymous, and does not take long to complete.

Culture is all of the unique features of a family's structure and and includes routines, activities, beliefs, race, ethnicity, and community.
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 so that we can identify another family from your program.
