The Early Intervention Family Alliance

FV Indiana wanted to share an opportunity for families to connect to a national network around the issues of Part C (which is known as First Steps in Indiana):
The Early Intervention Family Alliance is a national group of family leaders dedicated to improving outcomes for infants and toddlers with disabilities and their families. The EIFA works to assure meaningful family involvement in the development of Part C policies and their implementation at community, state and federal levels.
Membership is free to families currently receiving Part C early intervention.
Other interested families can join at a rate of $25.00 a year.

I would encourage those who are receiving services from First Steps to support the Part C initiatives.

My now seven-year-old son has improved much from having received these services when he was two-years-old. He went on to special needs preschool for some hyper activity, and a speech delay, but he is now bringing me weekly progress reports that have been good. He is currently in the first grade.

I have appreciated these services much, and I hope to do more to support the Part C policies that enable these programs to be accessible.
