EIPLP turns 30 this year!
The Early Intervention Parent Leadership Project (EIPLP) began in 1991. The first "Parent Perspective" newsletter was published in the Winter 1992-1993. EIPLP proudly celebrates our 30th year supporting parents, caregivers and families in Early Intervention and beyond.

EIPLP is a great example of Massachusetts's commitment to including families as partners in the work that is done to support families in EI. Every family has a unique perspective. Sharing and being able to tell their stories, empowers families in leading their child's journey through EI and other systems as their child gets older.

Please follow us on our social media and participate in the celebration!

EI Family Survey
The EI Family Survey (also known as the NCSEAM Family Survey) is going online in March!

If your child has been enrolled in Early Intervention (EI) for at least six months and you did not fill out a Family Survey in the last year, you may be eligible to share your feedback.

If you are eligible, you will be given a one-time user code to log on and complete the Survey. Please fill it out and hit send when you have finished.

Your feedback helps the Department of Public Health (DPH) and your EI program improve services for your child and family, and for other families as well.

Jack's Perspective of VOC2020

This was my first year attending the Federation for Children with Special Needs – Visions of Community Conference. I was excited to attend not only because it got me out of the house (I am a stay-at-home dad), but I was able to learn information that would help me advocate for our four-year-old son.
