Supporting social-emotional and mental health needs of young children through Part C early intervention: Results of a 50-state survey

This report examines features of states' Part C Early Intervention (EI) programs that help them identify and serve infants and toddlers with social-emotional (SE) delays and mental health conditions. A 50-state survey conducted by the National Center for Children in Poverty (NCCP) and Georgetown University Center for Children and Families (CCF) asked state Part C Coordinators about their programs' policies and procedures related to screening, evaluation, eligibility, services, and financing that affect the program's capacity to meet the SE needs of infants and toddlers. The survey results are shared in this report, along with information from follow-up interviews with state Part C Coordinators. Overall, the findings point to both critical gaps in the capacity of Part C programs to meet infant-toddler SE and mental health needs and promising strategies some states are using to support children in this domain.
