Family-Directed Assessment in the Early Intervention Program – 4 hours (0.4 CEUs)

This course will provide participants with the knowledge and resources they need to explain the family-directed assessment to the families with whom they work to encourage family participation. Early intervention providers with the responsibility to conduct family-directed assessments as part of the multidisciplinary evaluation will gain knowledge regarding the tools and strategies they can use to collect/gather information for the family-directed assessment. Additionally, this course will provide federal and State resources to support early intervention service coordinators and providers in making appropriate referrals (both within and outside of the EIP) for the families with whom they work, as needed. Participants will gain knowledge of the family-directed assessment as a component of the multidisciplinary evaluation (MDE) and the regulatory requirements and responsibilities involved.


The purpose of the course is to:

  • Provide clarification of the roles EIP approved evaluators, service coordinators, and parents have as part of the family-directed assessment

  • Explain what the family-directed assessment is and how to encourage families to participate in the family-directed assessment

  • Identify the process of gathering information for the family-directed assessment

  • Review procedures for assessments and evaluations

  • Identify how to develop family-centered Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) outcomes using information gathered from the family-directed assessment


Participants who successfully complete this course will earn 4 professional development hours, which can be used one time only towards the annual professional development requirements, as outlined in the New York State Department of Health Bureau of Early Intervention Provider Agreement. Additionally, 0.4 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are awarded with full completion of this course (4 contact hours/0.4 credits).
