Twenty-eight local interagency coordinating council (LICC) coordinators were surveyed on their perceptions of the implementation of early intervention legislation. Participants reported positive local impact in the areas of family-centered services and service coordination, improved childfind, funding, networking, and developmental outcomes. Negative effects included increased paperwork and reduction in "at-risk" services. (Author/CR)
