The services are provided in the family’s natural environment (the child's home, childcare center, or other community setting familiar to the family) and at no cost to the family. Any parent, caretaker, educator, or medical personnel who have a concern about a child's development can request an evaluation of the child to determine eligiblty for EI services.
