Birth To Three


Certain children are identified at birth as having disabilities. The state has established an agency named Child and Family Connections (CFC), which assists families in securing itinerant services (e.g. speech therapy, occupational therapy) for children identified at this age. Children who are eligible for services through CFC may be eligible for services at the age of three in a District run preschool program.

At 2 ½ years, Child and Family Connections notifies the Special Education District of Lake County (SEDOL) of a child in need of transition. SEDOL has up to 6 months to complete any additional evaluations the team recommends and then meet with parents and the District 6 team to discuss whether continuing intervention is needed. A variety of options may be discussed with parents.
