services, you have a unique view on how the  EI system works? All of the ICC (Interagency Coordinating Council) committees welcome parent members. Specialty Services, EI Program Planning, Personnel (staff) Preparation, EI Standards, and Fiscal aspects of the EI System in Massachusetts are covered. If you want to help make sure the family voice is represented at these meetings, let us know! Contact Roxanne at or call 877-353-4757 for details.

We love that you are here!

Parent Contacts are an important part of the Massachusetts Early Intervention System. Parent Contacts are parents and guardians of children currently receiving EI services who volunteer to receive information from the EIPLP and share it with other families. If your child is no longer receiving services, or you no longer wish to be the Parent Contact for your EI program, please let us know by calling 
1-877-353-4757 or emailing so that we can identify another family from your program.
