INFORMATIONAL

TO: Division Superintendents
FROM:
 
Richard T. La Pointe
Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT:
 
Virginia Interagency Coordinating Council (VICC) Survey
Previous Early Intervention/Preschool Services 

 
  Enclosed with this memorandum is a copy of a survey about
  Previous Early Intervention/Preschool Services.  It was
  developed by a subcommittee of the Virginia Interagency
  Coordinating Council (VICC), the state advisory council for
  the Part H system of services for zero (0) to two (2) year
  olds. Its purpose is to determine the reasons a child might
  be identified by a local school division as having a
  disability without ever having received early intervention
  services.  The information gathered will assist localities
  in their child find efforts.  Your cooperation is critical
  in this effort.

  A copy of the survey has also been provided to your special
  education supervisor.  The survey should be completed by the
  person in your division who makes the initial contact with
  the parents of young children referred for early childhood
  special education services.  As a contributor you will
  receive a copy of the complied data for your division.

  If you have questions, please contact David Mills at the
  Department of Mental Health, Mental Retardation and
  Substance Abuse at(804) 371-6593 or Linda Bradford at the
  Virginia Department of Education at (804) 225-2675.

  Your assistance in providing this data is greatly
  appreciated.
