NEW Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP)

The new IDEA Part C regulations also resulted in a new Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) form.  For children who may be transitioning to the school district, districts will note a very different IFSP form over the coming months.  The changes are related to the new Part C regulations along with current best practice in early intervention to produce a more functional plan that focuses on the family’s priorities developed to address the family’s daily routines and activities with their child.  The new form can be found on the Birth to Three System website at http://www.birth23.org/providers/Forms.html and the IFSP Handbook  is at http://www.birth23.org/providers/IFSPhandbook.pdf.
