A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM
THE NEW JERSEY EARLY INTERVENTION SYSTEM
A New Statewide Toll Free Referral Number
Effective July 1, 2008 the NJEIS is regionalizing the system point of entry (SPOE) for referral of children, birth to age three, with developmental delays and disabilities. This toll free number replaces the direct referral for early intervention through 21 county numbers. Families and primary referral sources will now only need to call 1-888-653-4463 to refer a child to the NJEIS.
For children, birth to age 21 with special health care needs referrals continue to be made through the 21 county Special Child Health Case Management Units (SCHS-CMUs).
referral numbers can be found at:
The Early Intervention System (EIS), under the Department of Health & Senior Services, implements New Jersey's statewide system of services for infants and toddlers, birth to age three, with developmental delays or disabilities, and their families.
"Our mission is to enhance the capacity of families to meet the developmental and health related needs of their child." (Copyright 2014)
