Data Brief: Examining Perspectives of Children’s Integrated Services (CIS) from Families Served by CIS Early Intervention

To contribute to Vermont’s understanding and prioritization of the experience of families receiving CIS services, Building Bright Futures (BBF) supported the Child Development Division and the Children’s Integrated Services (CIS) State Team in an analysis of qualitative data representing families’ experiences with CIS for a subset of families who completed the EI Family Survey between November 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021. The project was designed to examine the perceptions and experiences of families who have received early intervention services as part of the CIS program. Of note, this is not a complete evaluation of CIS and further examination is needed to inform decision-making.
