EI Parent Leadership Project
Parent Contact Update
September 4, 2014 


Did you know...the EI Parent Leadership Project (EIPLP) is looking for parents to  participate in upcoming opportunities?  


Interagency Coordinating Council (ICC) Parent Representative: There are 7 parent representatives who are members of the ICC, one parent for each region of the state and an at-large representative. The parent members are appointed to represent parents and their perspectives about early intervention policies and procedures.


Interagency Coordinating Council (ICC) Committee Member: Any parent, whether or not he or she is an ICC member, may choose to join a committee or task group. We encourage family participation on all committees in order to keep the committee and its members family-centered. Family members that attend committee meetings on a regular basis receive reimbursement for their participation. Check out the committees at http://www.eiplp.org/icc.html


Early Intervention Onsite Monitoring Parent Team Member: A parent team member working collaboratively with a DPH Regional Specialists as part of an onsite monitoring team to visit and evaluate EI programs. This opportunity is open to parents whose children are graduates of a certified Early Intervention program.
