The evaluation results and eligibility meeting

You will get the results in the mail.

The form is called the Written Notice of Eligibility. Then you will meet with your coordinator.

Eligibility Meeting:

  • Your intake coordinator will schedule an eligibility meeting to talk about the evaluation results.

  • Your intake coordinator will be there, along with the evaluator.

  • You can invite others to support you if you'd like.

If you qualify for services:

  • You will talk about the services they think your child needs based on the evaluation.

  • You will choose a Family Support Coordinator (FSC) from the list. This will be the person who will help you with everything from now on.

  • You will schedule an IFSP meeting to create the Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP).

  • Sometimes, the eligibility and IFSP meetings will be at the same time. This may happen if it was very clear at intake that your child would qualify.

If you don't qualify:

  • Your intake coordinator will help you find other resources and supports.

  • If you don't agree with the decision, you can ask for another evaluation. Talk to your intake coordinator about your options.
