The Idaho Infant Toddler Program eManual provides basic guidelines for the direct implementation of the Idaho Infant Toddler Program on a regional level. It outlines the fundamental steps in assisting the families of infants and toddlers with developmental delays/disabilities and special health care needs to access direct, “family-centered” early intervention services.
Federal and state legislation and regulations have shaped the policies and requirements of the Idaho Infant Toddler Program. These can be found in the Idaho State Plan for Early Intervention under Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The Infant Toddler eManual provides guidelines and procedures for use in daily interactions with families. The eManual should be used in conjunction with the Idaho State Plan for Early Intervention. Recommended practices in early intervention services are also addressed throughout the manual.
This eManual is designed to be used by various professional staff that is in daily contact with children and families participating in the Infant Toddler Program. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Regional Early Intervention Specialists
- Family and Community Services Program Managers
- Children’s Special Health Program Supervisors
- Child Find Coordinators
- Service Coordinators
- Direct Service Providers
