Grant to a New York qualified vendor to help develop, coordinate, and deliver a comprehensive family training program with the goal of improving early intervention. The training program will help families in developing advocacy and leadership skills so they may better support their children with special needs.
Through this Request for Proposals, the New York State Department of Health (DOH) is seeking competitive proposals from qualified vendors to assist in the development, coordination, and delivery of a comprehensive Family Initiative Training Program that supports and develops parent involvement in all aspects of the Early Intervention Program. The purpose of this training is to help families develop leadership and advocacy skills to be able to better advocate on behalf of their children with special needs.
The Program for Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities is authorized under Part C of the Federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). A statewide Early Intervention Program (EIP) was established at the New York State Department of Health (Department) under Public Health Law (PHL - Title II-A, Article 25) in 1992 and has been fully operational since July 1, 1993.
The mission of the EIP is to identify and evaluate, as early as possible, those infants and toddlers whose healthy development is compromised and provide for appropriate intervention(s) to improve child and family development. The EIP provides a range of therapeutic and supportive services for eligible children with disabilities ages birth to three years and their families.
The Family Initiative Coordination Services Project (FICSP) facilitates, supports and develops parent involvement in all levels of the EIP. The FICSP develops and implements a training program, referred to as Partners, that provides parents with the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills, network with each other, and learn how to become better advocates for the care of their child with special needs on the local, state, and national levels. The FICSP also facilitates and supports parent attendance at national conferences on early childhood development, and facilitates parent involvement on the New York State Early Intervention Coordinating Council (EICC). The EICC is a 30-member Governor appointed Council that advises and assists the Department in the administration of the EIP. There are six (6) parent members on this Council.
