Welcome to ECI! To help you prepare for your first appointment with the team, here are some questions, handbooks and resources. The first appointment will be longer than any future appointments as we gather information to be evaluate your child and develop a service plan. Any answers and information you can compile in advance will help your service coordinator.
Questionnaire: You can begin filling out this form in advance of your meeting and email it to your enrollment coordinator. It will also be a resource for questions you have to ask the team. (link coming soon)
Handbook (Eng | Span): This outlines what ECI is and how our approach works best for you and your child.
Paying for ECI Services (Eng | Span): During the initial meeting we will talk about family cost share, which covers if and what you may be required to pay for ECI services.
Transition (Eng | Span): This outlines how ECI works with your local school district and other community agencies to help your child transition out of ECI services at age 3.
We will have time during and after the assessment to answer questions about your child and your service plan. Some frequently asked questions during the first meeting are:
- How is ECI different from other therapies?
ECI provides comprehensive case management, therapy and counseling for young children and their caregivers. Using an evidence-based primary provider approach to teaming and adult coaching, ECI has consistently outperformed state metrics for critical developmental outcomes, such as social/emotional development, acquiring/using new skills and getting basic care. You'll learn more about our approach as we develop your plan. The welcome letter will help explain further, too.
- What if my child is close to age 3?
ECI will evaluate your child and help with the transition of services at age 3. The transition will be a key part of your service plan.
