Who we are...

The Illinois Early Intervention Clearinghouse is operated by the Early Childhood and Parenting (ECAP) Collaborative at the University of Illinois. The EI Clearinghouse is funded by the Illinois Department of Human Services.

The Illinois Early Intervention (EI) Program provides a collection of services for families of children from birth to age 3 who have disabilities or developmental delays or who are at risk of having developmental delays. Families are the key to successful early intervention. Our mission is to provide families with the information they need to support their children's growth and development.


The EI Clearinghouse Web site provides families with access to an extensive early intervention library collection of books, videos, and journals. Some materials are available in Spanish as well as English.

The Web site also contains a newsletter for parents and links to other early intervention information intended for families.

EI professionals: We provide a list of videos approved for CEU credit as well as our library collection. Visit the Web sites of Provider Connections, the statewide network of (Child and Family Connections) CFC offices, and the Illinois EI Training Program.
