Developmental interventions, or “health services,” are provided to families who have a child or children that have been identified as having a developmental delay. To get health services, the state will use an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) or Individualized Education Program (IEP). Discipline-specific therapies and family support services are incorporated into IFSPs/IEPs based on the child and family’s assessment information.
Specific health services will be provided individually, in groups or using a consultative model of intervention, based on the recommendations of the IFSP team.
