ENROLL IN A COURSE

Introduction to Service Coordination

This course is the official training approved and sponsored by the New York State Department of Health Bureau of Early Intervention.  Service coordination is a vital component of the Early Intervention Program (EIP).  Service coordinators have the responsibility of providing children and their families with necessary information, guidance and support, beginning at referral to the EIP and continuing throughout the time they participate in the program.   Along with a thorough working knowledge of the EIP, service coordinators must possess the skills necessary to work in a partnership with families and other professionals to ensure children and families participating in the EIP receive needed information, supports and services.  In recognition of this, Early Intervention regulation 10 NYCRR Section 69-4.4(b) specifies and the New York State Department of Health Provider Agreement require, all providers of service coordination in the EIP to successfully complete this state sponsored training course prior to rendering service coordination services to children and families in the EIP. 

This ISC training curriculum contains current and necessary information for service coordinators to assist them in performing the required service coordination activities in the EIP.  

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify and describe the responsibilities of initial and ongoing service coordinators.

  • Apply regulatory requirements to their work as initial/ongoing service coordinators.

  • Accurately communicate information about the Early Intervention Program to families.

Participants who successfully complete this course will earn four 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.

 

Transition Responsibilities in the EIP

The transition process, moving from Early Intervention Program services to preschool special education programs or other community services, is an essential component of every child’s IFSP.  Transition planning helps to ensure that the process is successful.  It is important that both parents and professionals understand the requirements for transition and the services that are available for children. This training reviews all of the steps of the transition process.

 

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

 

  • Describe and explain the components of the transition process for both children who are and who are not eligible for preschool special education programs and services.

  • Apply the information about the transition process to real-life settings.

  • Describe and explain the procedural safeguards afforded to parents in the transition process.

Participants who successfully complete this course will earn two 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.

Insurance Responsibilites in the EIP

Participants in this course will learn about the regulatory requirements of New York State Public Health Law and the use of private insurance and Medicaid for reimbursement of services delivered to children in the NYS Early Intervention Program (EIP).

 

This course will cover:

  • the roles and responsibilities of initial and ongoing service coordinators regarding insurance discussions with families

  • collection of insurance information from families

  • verification of insurance information with the insurer

  • documentation of the child’s insurance information in the State data system and the child’s record

 

Participants will also become familiar with the Insurance Tool Kit for Service Coordinators. This course reflects the changes made to EIP regulations, which were adopted on December 5, 2018. Participants who successfully complete this course will earn two 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.
