Illinois Early Intervention Extended Services

November 3, 2021

Illinois Early Intervention Extended Services will be available for eligible Early Intervention Families.

Illinois law (325 IL CS, Section 11) was amended by SB0820, Amendment 002.  This legislation goes into effect in January of 2022, applies to children with May 1st through August 31st birthdays, and provides eligible families the option to extend Illinois Early Intervention (EI) services past the child's third birthday.  If a child meets the criteria, families will be offered the option to continue with EI services until the beginning of the next school year.

You can read more about the extended services via this flyer.  You can distribute this flyer to families you work with in early intervention.
