4 Ley de Educación de Personas con Discapacidades (2004)
IDEA IDEA Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (2004) Ley de Educación de Personas con Discapacidades (2004) IDEA is the current legislation in which Part C, services to Infants and Toddlers, are mandated. In 2004, IDEA was reauthorized. Parts B and C are the two parts of the legislation which cover services to children with disabilities. In overseeing IDEA, the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP), which is in the United States Department of Education oversee all the programs who receive funding under IDEA for Parts B and C.

5 How Did We Get to IDEA? ¿Cómo llegamos a IDEA?
1973 P.L Vocational Rehabilitation Act Section 504 1975 P.L Education for All Handicapped Children Act 1986 P.L Amended 1990 P.L Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) 1997 P.L Amended IDEA 2004 P.L IDEA 1973 P.L Ley de Rehabilitación Vocacional Sección 504 1975 P.L Ley para la Educación de Todos los Niños Discapacitados 1986 P.L Enmienda 1990 P.L Ley de Educación de Personas con Discapacidades (IDEA) 1997 P.L Enmienda de IDEA 2004 P.L IDEA There were very few laws regarding disabilities prior to the 1970’s… Federal law for people with disabilities began with adults and was employment focused…over the years, the target age has become younger and younger, more focused on education and is now addressing infant and toddlers. (1973) – focused on employment and vocational opportunities (1975) – In 1975, this was “landmark” legislation - Public Law guaranteed a free, appropriate public education (FAPE) to each child with a disability in every state and locality across the country mandated programs and services for children ages 5 through 21 years of age. In 1983, through the Education of the Handicapped Act (EHA) Amendments of 1983 (P.L ), Congress amended, or changed, the law to expand incentives for preschool special education programs, early intervention, and transition programs. All programs under EHA became the responsibility of the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) (1986) – The law also established the Handicapped Infants and Toddlers Program (Part H) (now Part C). As specified by law, this program is directed to the needs of children, from birth to their third birthday, who need early intervention services. In addition, under this program the infant or toddler's family may receive services that are needed to help them assist in the development of their child. Law also mandated public schools serve 3-5 year olds by This encouraged services to infants and toddlers but it was still not required. (1990) In 1990, Congress passed the Education of the Handicapped Act Amendments of 1990 (P.L ). The name of the law, the Education of the Handicapped Act (EHA), was changed to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). As a result of this amendment, States were given the option to serve infants and young children, birth through two years of age and receive federal dollars. (1997) IDEA was reauthorized and now included Part H (later Part C) (0-3), Part B (FAPE for 3-21) and Part B, specifically section 619 (FAPE for 3-5)

8 Early Intervention Program for Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities
IDEA – Parte C IDEA – Part C Early Intervention Program for Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities Programa de Intervención Temprana para Infantes y Niños con Discapacidades Part C is the section of the federal law that addresses birth to 3. Every State in the U.S. has a Part C program and there are also some territories (like the Virgin Islands) that have a program. States have some flexibility with how they allocate the funds they receive, however, they must comply with IDEA and its regulations.

9 To assist States to implement:
Purpose of Part C Propósito de la Parte C To assist States to implement: → statewide → comprehensive → coordinated → multidisciplinary → interagency system Para ayudar a los Estados a implementar: → sistema → interagencia multidisciplinario → coordinado → completo → a nivel estatal The intent of this statement of purpose is to provide the most efficient and effective way to provide services. Goal is for team members and agencies to work together. The term, SYSTEM, is emphasized.

10 AzEIP Arizona’s Part C Program
Programa de Parte C de Arizona

11 Executive Order of the Governor
Orden Ejecutiva de la Gobernadora Executive Order of the Governor Executive Order This executive order indicated that Arizona agreed to address the minimum components of the federal law Orden Ejecutiva Esta orden ejecutiva indicó que Arizona acordó atender los componentes mínimos de la ley federal In November 1989, then-Governor, Rose Mofford, “accepted” funding from the Federal government to provide Early Intervention services in Arizona indicating Arizona would implement the required components.

12 Department of Economic Security
Order designated the: Department of Economic Security (DES) as the Lead Agency to oversee the program in Arizona La Orden designó al: Departamento de Seguridad Económica (DES) como la Agencia Líder para supervisar el programa en Arizona. All States must have a lead agency designated as the single line of authority to receive the funds and ensure that the requirements of the law are being carried out. The Arizona Early Intervention Program (AzEIP) is the statewide system of supports and services for families of infants and toddlers, birth to three years of age, with disabilities or delays Its responsibilities will be discussed throughout this training and include: Ensuring a comprehensive, coordinated, statewide system of early intervention; Facilitating interagency collaboration; Establishing intergovernmental agreements; Preparing and implementing the policies necessary to meet the requirements of IDEA, Part C.

13 DES/AzEIP DES/AzEIP Within DES, the Arizona Early Intervention Program (AzEIP) was created to fulfill the Lead Agency responsibilities Dentro de DES, se creó el Programa de Intervención Temprana de Arizona (AzEIP) para cumplir con las responsabilidades de Agencia Líder. The Arizona Early Intervention Program (AzEIP) is the statewide system of supports and services for families of infants and toddlers, birth to three years of age, with disabilities or delays Its responsibilities will be discussed throughout this training and include: Ensuring a comprehensive, coordinated, statewide system of early intervention; Facilitating interagency collaboration; Establishing intergovernmental agreements; Preparing and implementing the policies necessary to meet the requirements of IDEA, Part C.

14 Misión del AzEIP AzEIP Mission
Mejorar la capacidad de las familias de sustentar a sus infantes y niños pequeños scon retraso o discapacidad para que prosperen en sus hogares y comunidades. To enhance the capacity of families to support their infants and toddlers with delays or disabilities to thrive in their homes and communities. The ultimate mission of all parts of the early intervention system is to help families and children be part of their community. As children grow and move into school, you may hear the word “inclusion.” This inclusion starts at birth. We want families to know that we are here to help them be a part of the community and do all the activities that they want to with their family. We do not want them to be segregated. Every child has the right to fully participate in the community. ALL children have different abilities and how children may participate in the community may look a little different, but they are all a part of it. We strive to help them participate in all the activities they would if they didn’t have a child with a disability. Some families may already be doing this and only need minimal support, other families may need help with strategies so they can enjoy their life. So, when we work with families, we ask what things do you do now. What things would you like to do? We are here to help makes the things you do easier and help you do the things you would like to.

15 AzEIP Participating Agencies
Agencias participantes del AzEIP Arizona Department of Economic Security Arizona Early Intervention Program Division of Developmental Disabilities Arizona Department of Health Services Arizona State Schools for the Deaf and the Blind Arizona Department of Education Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System Departamento de Seguridad Económica de Arizona Programa de Intervención Temprana de Arizona División de Discapacidades de Desarrollo Departamento de Servicios de Salud de Arizona Escuelas Estatales para Sordos y Ciegos de Arizona Departamento de Educación de Arizona Sistema de Contención de Costos de Cuidados de la Salud de Arizona Arizona State law requires these five State agencies to work together in the early intervention system. This is helpful to have these agencies all work together for children with disabilities and their families. It also present unique challenges as each agency is a different system with different laws, policies and procedures. Not all of these agencies provide direct services to children and families. However, they are required to work together for the interagency system of early intervention. There is a 5-State Interagency Agreement which can be found on AzEIP’s website (website provided at the end of presentation) which discusses the roles and responsibilities of each of the agencies in Arizona’s early intervention system. Direct services are provided by DES/AzEIP contractors, DES/DDD, and ASDB. All agencies work together on child find and public awareness activities. DES has separate IGAs with ADE to collaborate on transition children from early intervention to schools and also on helping each other refer children who may be eligible. The Transition IGA and Child Find IGA can also be found on AzEIP’s websire.

Service coordinators have regular contact with families to check in and see how things are going, see if any of their needs or priorities have changed.

20 Coordinación de servicios
Service Coordination Coordinación de servicios Service coordination is an ongoing effort to collaborate with the family and other relevant individuals to develop and monitor the IFSP process. La coordinación de servicios es un esfuerzo continuo de colaboración con la familia y otras personas relevantes para desarrollar y monitorear el proceso IFSP.

30 Developmental Perspectives
Development is a highly integrated process, rather than a series of discrete, sequential steps. Perspectivas de Desarrollo El desarrollo es un proceso altamente integrado, en vez de una serie de pasos discretos y secuenciales. A simple meal is really a bunch of integrated developmental activities. The child’s development in different areas happens together and is affected by the different areas.

31 Arizona’s Definition of Developmental Delay
Definición de Arizona para Retraso del Desarrollo Arizona’s Definition of Developmental Delay Un niño de nacimiento a 36 meses de edad que no ha alcanzado el 50 por ciento de las metas de desarrollo esperadas a su edad cronológica, en uno o más de las áreas siguientes: Física (motricidad fina y/o gruesa, sensorial incluyendo visión y/o oído) Cognitiva Comunicación Social o emocional Adaptiva A child birth to 36 months of age who has not reached 50 percent of the developmental milestones expected at his/her chronological age, in one or more of the following domains: Physical (fine and/or gross motor, sensory including vision and/or hearing) Cognitive Communication Social or emotional Adaptive Required component – AzEIP’s definition – 50% in one or more areas…note: physical domain to include hearing and vision.

32 Definition (continued)
Definición (continuado) Definition (continued) O Condiciones establecidas Que se sabe que tienen una alta probabilidad de resultar en retraso del desarrollo Tiene que ser diagnosticada por un profesional calificado. OR Established Conditions Known to have a high probability of resulting in developmental delay Must be diagnosed by a qualified professional OR child has an established condition

33 Established conditions may include but are not limited to:
Las condiciones establecidas pueden incluir pero sin limitarse a: Established conditions may include but are not limited to: Cerebral palsy Chromosomal abnormalities Severe attachment disorders Pediatric under nutrition (Failure to thrive) Metabolic disorders Neural tube defects (e.g. spina bifida) Significant auditory or visual impairment Periventricular leukomalasia Parálisis cerebral Anormalidades cromosómicas Trastornos severos de apego Subnutrición pediátrica (no prosperar) Trastornos metabólicos Defectos del tubo neural (por ejemplo, espina bífida) Impedimento auditivo o visual significativo Leucomalacia periventricular Some examples of established conditions Periventricular leukomalasia = Is associated with the formation of cysts or fluid filled holes in the brain; the destruction of white matter in the brain due to lack of oxygen and resulting in the development of cysts around the lateral ventricles. This is a common cause of cerebral palsy in premature infants; injuries to part of the brain near the ventricles, caused by lack of oxygen.

34 DES/Division of Developmental Disability (DDD) eligibility**
Elegibilidad** DES/División de Discapacidad del Desarrollo (DDD) DES/Division of Developmental Disability (DDD) eligibility** A child under the age of 6 may be eligible for services if there is a strongly demonstrated potential that the child is or will become developmentally disabled (Cognitive Disability, CP, Epilepsy or Autism) as determined by appropriate tests. (A.R.S ) Un niño menor de 6 años de edad puede ser elegible para servicios si hay un potencial firmemente demostrado que el niño presenta o presentará una discapacidad en su desarrollo (discapacidad cognitiva, CP, epilepsia o autismo) según lo determinado mediante pruebas apropiadas. (A.R.S )

35 Arizona State Schools for the Deaf and the Blind
Escuela Estatal para Sordos y Ciegos de Arizona Eligibility: Diagnosed, bilateral, permanent hearing loss; and/or Medically diagnosed visual impairment AND the visual/hearing impairment must interfere with the child’s performance in their educational environment Elegibilidad: - Pérdida auditiva diagnosticada, bilateral, permanente; y/o - Impedimento visual diagnosticado médicamente, Y el impedimento visual/auditivo tiene que interferir con el rendimiento del niño en su entorno educativo. ASDB, as a State agency, determines its eligibility. Additional info from federal law: Visual impairment including blindness means an impairment in vision that, even with correction, adversely affects a child's educational performance. For early intervention, we look to see how the diagnosis impacts the child’s development. For more information about ASDB eligibility, we encourage you to get to know the vision and hearing specialists in your community and learn more about the agency and their support for families and children.

36 AzEIP-Only AzEIP solamente
Eligibility: Children who are eligible for AzEIP but do not meet eligibility for another agency (DDD or ASDB) Elegibilidad: Los niños elegibles para AzEIP, pero que no satisfacen elegibilidad para otra agencia (DDD o ASDB) These are children who have a 50% delay in one or more areas or who have one of the established conditions listed previously. [If there are questions about ADHS: They no longer provide direct services to children in AzEIP, but they still collaborate with AzEIP through the ICC. In addition, they assist with ensuring that AzEIP knows of its programs. AzEIP then helps families access those DHS programs that a child and family may be eligible for. All children who were previously eligible for ADHS continue to be served in early intervention. Before a child was eligible for DHS, they had to be eligible for AzEIP. So, these children are simply considered AzEIP-only now.]

37 Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP)
Plan de Servicio Familiar Individualizado (IFSP) Required component. This component as a number of different parts and also includes the requirement of service coordiantion that we mentioned earlier.

38 Assessment Evaluación Familia Family Otros cuidadores Other caregivers

Reflects functional outcomes important for the family and child Evaluated once a year and reviewed at least every 6 months Functional outcomes are goals and changes. The supports and services assist the family in meeting the outcomes within their everyday routines, activities and interactions. Each year an annual assessment is conducted. For example, a child’s currently level of development is updated. Every 6 months, the IFSP is reviewed, or more often where appropriate based on infant or toddler and family needs. A family can ask for an IFSP meeting at any time.

41 El IFSP tiene que incluir:
IFSP must include: El IFSP tiene que incluir: Child’s present levels of development; Family's resources, priorities, and concerns; Functional, measurable outcomes expected to be achieved for the child and family; Criteria, procedures, and timelines to determine progress; Early intervention services, including the frequency, intensity, and method of delivering services; Niveles actuales de desarrollo del niño; Recursos, prioridades e inquietudes de la familia; Resultados funcionales, medibles, que se espera alcanzar para el niño y la familia; Criterios, procedimientos y fechas límite para determinar progreso; Servicios de intervención temprana, incluyendo la frecuencia, intensidad y método de proveer servicios. - Levels of development include cognitive, physical, communication, social or emotional, and adaptive development, based on objective criteria - Family’s RPC relate to enhancing the development of the family's infant or toddler with a disability. - The functional outcomes include pre-literacy and language skills, as developmentally appropriate for the child. The outcomes should be participating-based, that is, outcomes that occur through the child’s participating in everyday activities. - Description of outcomes includes how progress is being made towards achieving the results/outcomes is being made and whether modifications or revisions of the results or outcomes or services are necessary - Services: based on peer-reviewed research, to the extent practicable, necessary to meet the unique needs of the child and family

42 El IFSP tiene que incluir:

43 Developmental Perspectives
Perspectivas de Desarrollo Developmental Perspectives Los niños se desarrollan dentro del contexto de sus interacciones, rutinas y actividades diarias. Sus procesos de desarrollo tienen un impacto sobre cómo interactúan y funcionan en su familia y su vida comunitaria. Children develop within the context of their everyday interactions, routines, and activities. Their developmental processes impact how they interact with and function in their family and community life For infants and toddlers, they develop and grow in those places where they spend most of their time and with the people they see the most. So, early intervention providers should try to support those caregivers that are around the child and give them ideas and strategies to help the child develop in their natural environments.

44 Functional outcomes for very young children with disabilities are outcomes that make day to day life for both the child and family easier, while also promoting the child’s development, engagement, independence, and social relationships [Hatton et al (2003)] Los resultados funcionales en niños muy pequeños con discapacidades son resultados que hacen más fácil la vida cotidiana para el niño y la familia, a la vez que promueven el desarrollo, participación, independencia y relaciones sociales del niño. [Hatton et al. (2003)] Functional outcomes: Refer to things that are meaningful to the child in the context of everyday living Refer to an integrated series of behaviors or skills that allows the child to achieve the important everyday goals Emphasize ‘meaning’ – ask: Can the child carry out meaningful behaviors in a meaningful context? NOT Can the child perform discrete behaviors such as knowing 10 words, smiling at mom, stacking 3 blocks, pincer grasp, walking backward What about domains? Functionality is not domains-based; children function across developmental domains Functionality can involve multiple domains and can cross domains Functional outcomes refer to behaviors that integrate skills across domains

45 Resultados funcionales
Functional Outcomes Increase participation in activities Improve social relationships Promote independence Participación incrementada en actividades Relaciones sociales mejoradas Promover independencia

46 Resources, priorities,concerns, and interests
Outcomes Resources, priorities,concerns, and interests Strategies Routines Services The on-going assessment of a child’s development is required throughout their time in early intervention. That along with parent’s changing resources, priorities and concerns and changing routines of the family generates on-going review of the functional otcomes and resulting supports and services. On-going Assessment

47 Recursos, prioridades, inquietudes e intereses
Resultados Estrategias Rutinas Servicios Evaluación continuada

48 Developmental Perspectives
Perspectivas de los progresos Durante los primeros años de vida, lo que los niños aprenden acerca de sí mismos y el mundo que les rodea ocurre durante interacciones sociales con los padres y otros miembros de la familia, como parte de rutinas diarias como vestirse y comer la cena. During the earliest years of life, children’s learning about themselves and the world around them occurs during social interactions with parents and other family members as part of daily routines, such as getting dressed and eating dinner. Think about all the different things that happen during breakfast or dinner … Who is around? Where does it happen? How does the child eat and drink? All these things contribute to a child’s learning and development.

49 What are Natural Environments?
¿Qué son entornos naturales? Entornos que son naturales o normales para los compañeros del niño de la misma edad que no tienen discapacidad Settings that are natural or normal for the child’s age peers who have no disability Where the services are provided depends upon the family’s natural environments. Ask the family where they spend their day … these are the family’s natural environments. They might be home, child care, a relative’s house, the park, etc.

50 Early Intervention Services may include:

Todos los IFSPs contienen una Página de Planificación de Transición, que incluye: - Discusiones y entrenamiento con miembros de la familia relacionados con colocaciones futuras; - Procedimientos para preparar al niño para cambios; y - con consentimiento de los padres, compartir información, evaluaciones, análisis e IFSPs con preescolar y otros programas. Required in all IFSPs. Transition should be an ongoing discussion from the beginning of EI services…keep in mind that PEA eligibility is different from EI…it is NOT guaranteed that services will continue…again, review the new transition agreement between AzEIP and ADE.

53 IFSP = Improved Child and Family Outcomes
