October 2021

The Fall 2021 edition of the Early Intervention Clearinghouse newsletter is available on our website in English and Spanish . Our main story looks at how early intervention providers act as coaches who work with families to help them best support their child in building their current skills and creating new ones. We also have a story on a new education series on inclusion from Early CHOICES. There’s also a list of books on inclusion that can be accessed through the clearinghouse library.

This newsletter also includes our latest tip sheet, The Family’s Role in Early Intervention Visits , which provides a rundown of what families can expect from a typical early intervention visit.

We also provide an update on the State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP).

You can find all previous issues of the Early Intervention Clearinghouse newsletter on our website in English and Spanish .
