The Delaware County Local Interagency Coordinating Council has been established by the Delaware County Office of Early Intervention and the Delaware County Intermediate Unit to support the mandate of The Pennsylvania Early Intervention Services System Act that each county establish and operate a Local Interagency Coordinating Council (LICC) as a way for local families, service providers and agency representatives to share information, work together, and ensure the availability of quality early intervention services.
The Delaware County LICC:
Helps families gain access to early intervention services (for children birth to 5 years of age)
Provides information to other service providers on how to connect families with Early Intervention Services
Sponsors trainings for families with children in the early intervention system to help them understand their rights
Shows families how to support their children through the transition into preschool services.
Shares information with families on other social services available to them in Delaware County.
Invites families to share thoughts and ideas regarding Early Intervention services.
Works with other agencies that provide services to young children to make sure they have the support they need to include children with an IFSP or IEP in their programs.
Arranges a special day for where the families in Delaware County can gather for fun, food and information called Spring Fling.
Everyone is welcome to attend and participate in any meeting. We encourage the participation of families, early intervention providers and other agencies that support families of young children. Their thoughts and ideas provide valuable information and direction to the Infant/Toddler and Preschool Early Intervention Programs.
