An Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) is developed by the parents and early intervention team for each child. The plan, based on assessment results, includes the intervention strategies designed to assist the family to achieve desired developmental outcomes and describes the services required to facilitate the child’s progress. Plans are reflective of parental priorities and sensitive to the culture and values of the family. Services take place in the family’s home or other community settings where the child and family spend time.
One staff member will be assigned as the service coordinator and primary provider for each child enrolled in the program. The service coordinator will work closely with the family and other caregivers to incorporate intervention strategies into the child’s daily routines. The service coordinator or the family may request consultation periodically form other staff members.
The early intervention team may consist of:
Speech and Language Therapist
All members of the early intervention team are credentialed as Early Intervention Specialists by the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services.
