Welcome Elisabeth Teller to the OEC B23 team!
October 26, 2020
The OEC lead agency team is building back up to be able to fully support our 19 EIS programs. Elisabeth comes on board from Sarah, Inc.-KIDSTEPS where she served as the Director of Children’s Services, and the B23 program director for 16 years. Before that she was a developmental therapist at the STAR Rubino Center. It has been a long few years for Part C in Connecticut starting with the massive change to a fee for service system, then moving to a new lead agency (and a few new commissioners), then the RFP and related transitions and of course now COVID. Elisabeth experienced all that from the provider perspective and now will help the OEC develop and integrate up-to-date monitoring activities that will align the IDEA and DSS/CMS requirements to assure compliance and results for the families we support. She will also be working with Aileen on our infant mental health efforts and dispute resolution supports. Elisabeth can best be reached at Elisabeth.Teller@ct.gov as we are all working remotely. Please help us welcome her and let her know what would be most helpful!
