Service Coordination Tool Kit Reissued

Dear Colleague:

As a result of amendments to Public Health Law enacted in 2012, that became effective in January and April, 2013, service coordinators in the Early Intervention Program (EIP) have expanded responsibilities. In an effort to assist service coordinators with the performance of these duties, the Department issued the Service Coordination Tool Kit on April 26, 2013.

Based on feedback from the EIP municipal and provider community, the Service Coordination Tool Kit has been updated and improved. 

Please find attached to this e-mail the following sections of the Service Coordination Tool Kit, reissued:

  • An overview of new service coordination responsibilities in law (Click Here)

  • A Transition Tool Kit which has been updated to reflect new service coordinator responsibilities (Click Here)

  • Information on Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) Implementation (Click Here)

  • Information on Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) Notification (Click Here)

The Service Coordination Tool Kit is very comprehensive and details the procedures service coordinators should follow while performing their responsibilities in the EIP. Service coordinators should begin utilizing the guidance and the standardized templates contained in this tool kit immediately.

The Insurance Tool Kit is still in the revision process and will be reissued in the near future. This tool kit will include expanded guidance and improved templates for collection of insurance information, consent/release of information, etc.

Please share this information with colleagues involved in the EIP.

We hope that you find the information contained in the tool kit helpful. If you have any additional questions, please call (518) 473-7016 or submit an e-mail to
