What is an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP)?

November 2, 2015

An Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) is a written plan for the child’s and family’s services in the early intervention program that the family develops with a team of qualified personnel and the Early Intervention Official. The IFSP includes goals and strategies to address priorities and concerns.

Your family’s IFSP will include a statement of the following:
– Child’s present level of functioning
– Family’s resources, priorities and concerns related to child’s development
– Early intervention services needed to meet your child’s and family’s needs
– Where services will be provided
– Outcome or goals expected from services
– Strategies, activities that will lead to the outcomes
