How to Make a Referral

The Douglas County EI/ECSE (PDF) program maintains a "single point of entry" procedure for referral into the program. Families, physicians, nurses, community preschool/daycare staff, community agency staff or school district staff can make a referral by calling (541) 440-4794. Evaluations are typically conducted at the Early Intervention Program office, but can be arranged at another location if this is more convenient for the family.

There is no cost to families for the eligibility evaluation or for the services provided to children who are eligible for either program.
