SUPPORTED LIVING SERVICES
In alignment with guidance provided by the Colorado Department of Health and Environment and the CDC, as well as advisement from a planning group, all EI services will continue to take place virtually through June 30, 2021. Additionally, we will be offering limited in-person therapy visits along with tele-therapy sessions for children with an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP). To ensure the health and safety of the children, families, and providers engaged in EI services, please know that Service Coordination will remain virtual through at least June 30, 2021
We understand that service delivery changes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic impacts families, Service Coordinators, and providers in different ways. EI Colorado is striving to meet the needs of everyone concerned and is weighing the risks and benefits to the best of our ability using the most current information we have. This requires careful thought and planning and the need for flexibility whenever possible. As more information becomes available, we will continue to revise plans, evaluate practices, and share any updates.
