WHO WE ARE
The Regional Early Intervention Collaboratives (REICs) were established in 1993 by the New Jersey lead agency, the Department of Health (DOH) to provide local-level leadership in the planning and coordination of the New Jersey Early Intervention System (NJEIS). REICs help facilitate access and availability of quality early intervention services through outreach and collaboration. They are responsible for the regional System Point of Entry (SPOE) for referrals to the New Jersey Early Intervention System (NJEIS). The REICs assist the lead agency (DOH) with data collection, child find/public awareness, family support, and personnel development.
