Descriptions of Selected State Local Interagency Coordinating Councils (LICCs).
Shackelford, Jo, Ed.
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires that each state participating in the federal early intervention program establish a state interagency coordinating council (SICC) to assist and advise the state lead agencies in achieving a coordinated service delivery system. Some states have also established local interagency coordinating councils (LICCs) to support and provide information to the SICCs. This document was compiled to assist additional states and communities in developing local interagency coordinating councils (LICCs). It consists of information gathered from California, Illinois, Maryland, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin about their LICCs' organizational structure, roles and functions, funding and accountability, and technical assistance and support. Contact information for each state and lists of available documents are included. (SG)
