SCDHHS is seeking public comment on the FY 2017-18 IDEA Part C Grant Application which may be found HERE.

The South Carolina Interagency Coordinating Council (ICC) is hosting a series of public hearings to address the grant application, changes to BabyNet Policies and Procedures, and lead agency transfer.  This site will by updated regularly as hearings are scheduled across the state.


BabyNet is South Carolina’s interagency early intervention system for infants and toddlers under three years of age with developmental delays, or who have conditions associated with developmental delays. 

Anyone (a parent, doctor, caregiver, teacher or friend) can make a referral. Look for signs that an infant or toddler might need extra help. If you suspect a child may have a problem, the earlier you get help, the better!  Click HERE to find more information on referring a child to BabyNet.

 

WHAT IF THE CHILD IS MORE THAN THREE YEARS OLD? If the child is between the ages of 3 and 21, please contact your  local school district.
