Early Intervention Council

The Early Intervention Council is comprised of parents and professionals in the community who are dedicated to the children in Jackson County with special needs. The council meets once a month to discuss issues related to providing services to the children in our community. The Jackson County Early Intervention Council (JCEIC) has joined with the Early Childhood Partnership Team (ECPT) and meets on the second Friday of the month from 10 a.m. to Noon at First Church of the Nazarene, Ministry Building, 1974 E. McAndrews Rd., Medford.  Parents are encouraged to attend. We would love to have you come join us!
