Share your Insight About Early Intervention

Back of a school bus.The Early Intervention Clearinghouse (EIC) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) is conducting focus groups with families of young children with disabilities. We want to learn your perspectives about needed: supports, information, and services.

Specifically, you will also be asked to participate in a focus group discussion for 60-90 minutes.  At the beginning of the focus group meeting, you will complete a 20 minute questionnaire about your family and experiences with early intervention services.   Next, you will participate in a focus group discussion, which is similar to a roundtable discussion. After the focus group, you will have the opportunity to share your phone number and/or email address if you are interested in a follow-up contact.  During the follow-up you will be asked to review a brief summary of the focus group discussion and provide comments.

To participate you must be:

The parent or family member of a young (aged 0-8) child who received early intervention services.

Your participation is voluntary and your responses will be kept confidential. In appreciation for your time, you will receive a $10 giftcard and a package of resources.

To participate, please contact:

The focus groups will be held in English and in Spanish at locations, dates, and times throughout Illinois.
