Published: November 2, 2021

A new law will fix a gap in services for children with summer birthdays receiving early intervention (EI) services in Illinois. Senate Bill 820 (Public Act 102-0209) will go into effect on January 1, 2022, allowing children to continue EI services if their third birthday occurs between May 1 and August 31.

Additional information from Provider Connections can be found below. Families with questions can contact their early intervention service coordinator.
