The Use of a School Psychologist within the NYS Early Intervention Program

The Use of a School Psychologist within the NYS Early Intervention Program


Dear Colleague: 

The New York State Department of Health is revising its guidance related to qualified personnel who may provide psychology services in the Early Intervention Program (EIP). 

This Department relies upon the New York State Education Department's (NYSED) licensure, registration, and certification process to qualify certain professionals for the EIP, with the exception of those disciplines in early intervention (EI) for which there is no State license, certification, or registration required (e.g., certified low vision specialist, orientation and mobility specialist).

In March 2000, the Department issued a guidance document to clarify a number of issues with respect to qualified personnel, including acceptable qualifications for the provision of psychology services under the EIP.  The Department recently received clarification from NYSED.

This email and its attachment is to inform you of the revised standards for psychology services.

These revisions are effective immediately and are being used by the Department to identify the individuals who may provide services in the EIP.
