Family Request to Keep Remote IFSP Meetings
To the Bureau of Early Intervention:
We, the parents/families, participating in the of New York Early Intervention, petition the cancellation of the reinstatement of IFSP meetings to be held in person that are expected to go into effect on August 15, 2022.
Attending IFSP meetings in person will cause conflict in other obligations that we as parents are expected to abide by. Traveling to an Early Intervention office to discuss our children's development is unnecessarily time consuming, costly, and causes potential risk to the health and safety of our well being and the health of our children and families. We urge you to strongly consider keeping the IFSP meetings the way that they are (via phone conference), as it is preferred by families participating in EIP
