RI's Early Intervention Program promotes the growth and development of infants and toddlers who have a developmental disability or delay in one or more areas. Developmental disabilities or delays can affect a child’s speech, physical ability, or social skills. Children referred to the Early Intervention Program receive a comprehensive developmental evaluation to determine if they are eligible.
Who we are?
The Early Intervention Interagency Coordination Council (ICC) is composed of representatives from organizations that serve the Early Childhood population and parents of children who are currently or formerly enrolled in Early Intervention. The Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) is the Lead Agency for the Early Intervention Program in RI.
What we do?
The ICC is an advisory council to assist EOHHS with program implementation. We are a venue for information sharing and we encourage programs to work together on initiatives that are being implemented across the state. The ICC also acts as a sounding board for families and providers to discuss challenges and successes in their Early Intervention experiences.
Where and When do we meet?
We meet every other month on the 3rd Thursday of the month from 9:30 AM – 11:30 AM at the RI Parent Information Network at 1210 Pontiac Ave, Cranston, RI.

RIPIN supports RI’s Early Intervention program through the
placement of one or more Parent Consultants in each of the
state’s nine EI
programs. A Parent Consultant is someone who has
had a child who has participated in an Early Intervention Program. Their role is to support,
educate and help parents and other caregivers to better navigate the early childhood systems
of care throughout RI.
