Lyra has been receiving Early Intervention(EI) services since she was about 5 months old. The level of services and method of services vary from child to child and state to state. These services are provided under the federal law IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education ACT). I have come across parents that have never heard of EI services or others that are receiving inadequate services. Children with albinism are AUTOMATICALLY eligible for services based on medical diagnosis. All children should have the option to receive these services. Unfortunately, even with the federal law, some kids don’t get the opportunity. Sometimes its hard for parents to find out who handles the services for a particular state. Here is a website with lots of information about Early Intervention and contact names and numbers for EVERY STATE.
