3. Service Coordination
What is the cost? Are there any income restrictions?
There is no charge to families for an evaluation, the development of an IFSP or service coordination. Most services outlined in IFSP are available at no cost, but that is determined individually. Early On is available regardless of income.
Why is Early On a leader in developing relationships?
Family-centered care is the set of beliefs and principles that are the foundation for Early On. Family-centered care is a new way of thinking about and working with children and their families. At the heart of family-centered care is the recognition that the family is the constant in the child's life. Family-centered care builds equal partnerships between families and professionals and promotes trust and respect. Family-centered care honors the priorities, choices, and resources of the family.
Both families and professionals think that working with this set of beliefs and principles will create the brightest futures for our children and families.
