Understanding the Early Start Program

September 26 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Presented by Howard Doi, San Andreas Regional Center and

Michelle Oliver, Early Start Specialist, Santa Clara County Office of Education

Offered for FIRST 5 Partners and other local professionals such as Social Workers, Home Visitors, Childcare and Preschool providers, Family Resource Center staff, and Therapeutic Service Providers. Parents are also welcome.

Children from birth to age 5 may have unidentified developmental delays/special needs, and professionals/childcare providers need an introductory-level workshop about the details of the Early Start Program and how to refer these children and families in a timely fashion.

This presentation will begin with a basic overview of eligibility for Early Start and the Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP). It provides a foundation in understanding the transition steps as well as the similarities and differences between early intervention and special education programs.

Funded by FIRST 5 Santa Clara County
