State Interagency Coordinating Council (ICC) on Early Intervention
California’s Interagency Coordinating Council (ICC) serves as a forum for public input from parents, service providers, service coordinators, and other stakeholders about federal, state, or local policies that support the timely delivery of appropriate early intervention services. The ICC encourages a family-centered approach, family-professional partnerships, and interagency collaboration. Its mission is to promote and enhance a coordinated family service system for infants and toddlers, birth to three years, who have a developmental delay or disability, and their families.
Members of the ICC are appointed by the Governor. The council is comprised of parents of children with disabilities, early intervention service providers, health care professionals, state agency representatives and others interested in early intervention.
The ICC provides advice and assistance to the Department of Developmental Services in several ways:
- Regarding the statewide system of early intervention
- About achieving the full participation, cooperation, and coordination of appropriate public agencies in the state
- Serving as a forum for public input
