Jackson County EI/ECSE


Jackson County Early Intervention and Early Childhood Special Education (EI/ECSE), a program of Douglas ESD, provides special services and educational support for children with developmental delays or disabilities. These services are designed to meet the individual needs of each child by building on the strengths of the child and family. Each child has an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) and services are based on the specific needs of each child and family.

Families, physicians, nurses, community preschools, daycare, community agencies, and school districts can refer a child to the EI/ECSE program. With parent permission, children may be screened and evaluated to determine if he or she has a delay that would make him/her eligible for services. The evaluation team works closely with the family to learn more about their child’s developmental needs. There is no cost to families for the evaluation or services provided to eligible children.

Our services are family centered. We believe families have the ultimate responsibility for meeting their child’s developmental needs.

All educational services are free to eligible children and their families.
