First Steps Interagency Coordinating Council on Infants and Toddlers

Indiana's Interagency Coordinating Council on Infants and Toddlers (ICC), which was first convened in 1987, is appointed by the Governor to advise and assist the Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services (DDRS) (the Lead Agency) in its responsibilities.Indiana Administrative Code then transferred these responsibilities to the Bureau of Child Development Services (BCDS) within DDRS. At least one-fifth of the ICC members are parents of children 12 years old or younger with disabilities or developmental delays. Other members include state agency groups, public and private early intervention service providers, legislators, pre-service professionals, and others. The ICC is committed to holding the vision of First Steps Early Intervention Services in Indiana and to keeping abreast of issues, concerns and trends that may affect First Steps in the future.
If you know a parent of a child (12 years old or younger) with disabilities or developmental delays that would be interested in serving on the ICC, please forward on the following information and encourage them to apply here.
