Welcome Families and Professionals
We want to hear your voice! These meetings are free to attend, and open to the public!
Our Core Statement:
"We are the Vermont Interagency Coordinating Council. We believe in all children reaching their developmental potential. We advise and assist Children's Integrated Services. When children and families thrive, Vermont thrives"
Under Part C of the Federal IDEA, states reciveing federal early intervention funds from the US Department of Education must establish an early intervention Interagency Coordinating Council (ICC). The council may consult, inform and suport Chidlren's Integrated Services around a variety of challenges concerning children aged from birth through five years. This means that parents and professionals are brought together through the Vermont Interagency Coordinating Council (VICC). Parents provide a voice to the council based on their own experiences receiving services for their child's developmental delay or risk for delay. Other voices include representatives from the Vermont State Legislature, Medicaid, Head Start, public and private providers, and many more that have a desire to improve services for Vermont families. The VICC is an opportunity for the community to participate through program planning, policy development and interagency coordination.
Because parents know their children best, and want the best for their children- parents are the child's most important supporter. We invite and encourage you to join us on the Vermont Interagency Coordinating Council (VICC). Your input will help identify areas to improve Children's Integrated Services, and you can become part of the solution that will help all children with special needs and their families achieve their goals.
The VICC is a free meeting open to the public and has opportunities for public comment when visitors can address the VICC about any relevant topic or concern. Meetings are held bi-monthly, typically at the Waterbury State Office Complex. If you are interested in joinging these meetings, please click here for further details.
