Kirby, Julia, Ed.
The Texas Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) Program is an interdisciplinary, interagency program established with the belief that programs working in partnership with parents will best serve the needs of infants and toddlers with developmental delays. Services for the children include physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech/language therapy, training in self-help skills, social activities, and developmental training. Services for the families include education, training in skills to help their children, support groups, counseling, and transportation. This 1990 report of the ECI Program describes: the system of services for infants and toddlers with developmental delay; activities on the state and local level; the effectiveness of the services; the state and local organization; and future needs. The report provides statistics on families in need, services offered, and public awareness. The report also notes the program's administration, history, growth since 1982, data management, and funding. (JDD)
