In addition monitoring their own compliance with billing 3rd party payers such as Medicaid, each EIS program is required to complete two self-assessment on a regular basis.
One is the Quality Practice Self-Assessment (QPSA) that tracks progress implementing the evidence-based practices being scaled up in Connecticut. Every EI Practitioner who work sees families more than 1 hour per month is required to complete the QPSA annually in the summer. It takes 10 minutes and provides rich data to their program and the lead agency.
The other self-assessment is an IDEA compliance Self-Assessment. This process results in improvement plans with timelines for correction when findings of noncompliance are identified and issued by the lead agency.
