The Office of Early Childhood (OEC) is Connecticut’s “lead agency” that administers Part C of the IDEA which we call the Birth to Three System. The OEC contracts with 19 agencies to provide all early intervention services (EIS) and supports.
For specific requests about records or other issues for a family in Birth to Three, please contact the Birth to Three program that is supporting the family as listed on their IFSP. Each child’s record is only maintained by the EIS Program that is supporting the family, not by the OEC. The program fax numbers are available on their webpage on this site.
