The Connecticut Birth to Three Interagency Coordinating Council (ICC) would love to have and welcome more parent representatives on its advisory council. Parent representatives currently receive a stipend for travel (mileage) and childcare reimbursement for attended ICC and ICC-related meetings. Additionally, if you cannot commit to an appointment to the ICC, we always welcome any comments, questions, or suggestions you may have. One of the greatest strengths the ICC can have is truly knowing how Birth to Three early intervention services are helping families, and even more importantly, where things can be improved. For more information or questions, the current parent representatives can be contacted via email through familyconnections@cpacinc.org. If you are interested in joining the ICC, please contact Anna Hollister at anna.hollister@ct.gov or 860-500-4411
