Approved VideosVideos Approved for EI CEU Credit

Videos can be ordered by email, telephone, fax, or in person at the library. Videos may be borrowed for two weeks and are not renewable. You may borrow up to four videos at a time. You will receive information with the video on options for returning the materials. For questions and material requests, please complete our Online Request Form

Continuing Education via Video-Based Training

Since April 2006, a maximum of 5 hours of EI credit via videos may be used for every 30 hours of continuing education submitted for renewal and/or core knowledge area documentation purposes for early intervention professionals. The EI Clearinghouse has worked with the Early Intervention Training Program to identify videos available from the EI Clearinghouse lending library that have been approved for EI credit hours. While providers cannot use video-based training for all of the required training hours, they can apply for credit for at least some of the required hours.

How Credit Hours are Determined

Video-based credits are based on contact time, so a half-hour video would equal a half hour of credit, a one-hour video would equal one hour of credit, etc. Each video viewed requires the completion of an EI Training Video Credit Request Form, which is to be sent to the EI Training Program when completed. After your information is reviewed and approved, you will receive a Certificate of Credit indicating that you have earned contact hours equal to the video running time (to the nearest quarter hour) to apply toward your EI credential. Please contact the Early Intervention Training Program for more information.

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.

Resources...

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.
