New to EI Forum

Individuals new to the early intervention system often have questions. The Early Intervention Training Program offers another level of support: New to EI Forum ! On the first Tuesday of each month, from 3-4pm, new providers will have the opportunity to ask questions about our field and our work. EITP team members and partners will be available to answer your questions and provide clarification, guidance and support as you familiarize yourself with the EI program beyond the Systems Overview.
