WarmLine Family Resource Center has developed a "Welcome to Early Start" brochure for families of children birth to three with developmental delays or disabilities. This handy guide helps orient parents to the basics of the Early Start early intervention system, including the role of the family resource center, the purpose of early intervention services, an overview of the IFSP document and process, and some ways that parents can prepare for IFSP meetings and support their child's development in the context of everyday routines and environments.
