The military medical departments provide Educational and Developmental Intervention Services (EDIS) pursuant to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) on military installations supported by Department of Defense (DoD) schools.
DoD Instruction 1342.12 provides broad policy for implementing EDIS. The Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) Regulation 40-53 provides detailed guidance on how the Army will operate Early Intervention Services (EIS) within EDIS programs.
The Army Medical Department operates EDIS in a variety of locations. There are eight Army installations in the contiguous United States and eleven military communities overseas, scattered throughout five countries.
Our website provides up-to-date information and resources for EDIS providers, administrators, military commands, and families.
EDIS is established by Public Law 102-119, which directed the Department of Defense (DoD) to provide services to eligible children in accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
