Let's Celebrate 30 years of Early Childhood provisions of IDEA

This October marks the 30th Anniversary of the passage of Public Law 99-457,
which established early intervention and mandated preschool special education services as part of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).  These early childhood programs have played a critical role in improving results and upholding the rights of infants, toddlers, and preschool children with disabilities and their families.

Do you know a family that has benefited from early intervention services made available through the IDEA programs?  Invite them to share their story with DEL or the Office of Special Education (OSEP) using the following social media platforms. 

The Early Support for Infant and Toddlers (ESIT) Team will be celebrating the 30th Anniversary of IDEA Part B, Section 619 and Part C later this month at the SICC meeting.
The next SICC meeting will be held on October 19, 2016, at: 

       Wenatchee School District Board Room 
       235 Sunset Avenue 
       Wenatchee, WA 98801  

The SICC meeting will be held from 9:00 AM –3:00 PM, and plan to join us immediately following the SICC for the anniversary celebration for PL 99-457!
