  • Local Child Welfare workers will refer children under the age of 3, who are victims of child abuse or neglect to Early Intervention services.
  • The standard CAPTA Referral form (CPS Early Intervention Referral) designed for this mandate is required.

ei ecse s responsibility
EI/ECSE’s Responsibility
