A community of support

Communities Can Influence Policy

January 13th, 2010 Posted in Advocacy, Area Board 5 grant

The Infant Development Association (IDA) of California has been awarded a mini-grant from the Developmental Disabilities Area Board 5 to implement the project, Communities Can Influence Policy. The Area Board has chosen this project to promote community education and awareness to shape public policy in response to the loss of Early Start services in their catchment area. Communities Can Influence Policy has two major components: community education and public policy influence.  Over the next 6 months we will implement the Communities Can Influence Policy in this area of Northern California.  If you do not already, check our site often at www.idofcal.org.  IDA is excited to have this opportunity, as recent changes to the California Early Start system concerns IDA, especially changes regarding the eligibility criteria for infants and toddlers who are in the at-risk category.  This concern stems from research that attests to the efficacy and importance of prevention and early intervention services for children who are at-risk for developmental delay. Historically, families have been the voice that has brought us national and state legislation as well as quality programs for individuals with special needs. Communities Can Influence Policy aims to educate and support families as they raise their voices to bring quality services back for infants and toddlers with at-risk conditions.

    I needed to create you that very little observation in order to thank you so much again just for the lovely guidelines you have shown above. It is quite shockingly open-handed with you to provide publicly all most people could have distributed for an electronic book to generate some money on their own, most notably given that you could have done it if you ever desired. Those tactics as well worked to become great way to fully grasp that many people have the same dream like my very own to realize a great deal more with reference to this problem. I believe there are numerous more pleasant times in the future for people who take a look at your blog post.
