Parent Educators + Parent Information

Parent Educators work through Project SCEIs and local health district offices. Each Parent Educator has a college degree and is the parent of a child with a disability or delay who has received early intervention services through Babies Can’t Wait.

Parent Educators are aware of Babies Can’t Wait policies, as well as the laws, rules, regulations and policies regarding education for young children with special needs. They are also familiar with the Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP), transition planning (e.g., for children aging out of Babies Can’t Wait or moving to a different district or program), and multicultural issues. Parent Educators present an important parent/family perspective at the state level.
