Full course description

Thank you for choosing to make a difference in the lives of infants and toddlers with developmental disabilities in Illinois.  In partnership with the families of these children, you will be able to maximize their child's potential and enhance their development!

To receive an Early Intervention (EI) credential in Illinois, you must complete this training entirely and then attend a one-day workshop titled "Online System Overview Follow-Up (SOFU)" in order to meet the IL Early Intervention Systems Training requirement. Both trainings are mandatory.

  • Please note that this training takes approximately 12 hours to complete, and must be completed prior to attending the SOFU session.
  • You must register for the SOFU session separately.  (Registration is not automatic). 
  • Both system trainings, Online System Overview and SOFU, must be completed within 3 years of making an application for an Illinois Early Intervention Credential.  If completed longer than 3 years prior to making an application for the credential, individuals will need to repeat both.

Within this training, you will receive an overview of the early intervention mission and key principles, State and Federal rules/regulations; roles and responsibilities of early interventionists; parents' rights/procedural safeguards; evaluation and assessment process; eligibility criteria; IFSP development and implementation of the IFSP; monitoring and reviewing the IFSP, and transition planning.
