An evaluation of the child's development must be completed to determine eligibility for early intervention services from EDIS. The evaluation includes the parents and is conducted by at least two early interventionists of different disciplines (multidisciplinary). The evaluation must cover all five domains of child development (i.e., cognition, communication, social/emotional, motor, self-care skills) and should include naturalistic observation of the child doing things he/she does typically.
Based upon the results of the evaluation, observation and information shared, the team, including the Family, determines if the child and family are eligible for early intervention services from EDIS.
Evaluation is documented on the IFSP-PD.
