It is the intent of the Legislature to assist in securing early intervention services
to infants or toddlers with disabilities and their families in accordance with the
federal early intervention program and whenever possible in concert with the family
policy objectives prescribed in sections 43-532 and 43-533 and federal and state initiatives. Such services are necessary to:
(1) Enhance the development of infants and toddlers with disabilities;
(2) Reduce the costs to our society by minimizing the need for special services, including
special education and related services, after such infants or toddlers reach school
(3) Minimize the likelihood of institutionalization of persons with disabilities and
maximize their potential for independent living in society;
(4) Enhance the capacity of families to meet the needs of their infants or toddlers
(5) Strengthen, promote, and empower families to determine the most appropriate use
of resources to address the unique and changing needs of families and their infants
or toddlers with disabilities; and
(6) Enhance the capacity of state and local agencies and service providers to identify,
evaluate, and meet the needs of historically underrepresented populations, particularly
minority, low-income, and rural populations.
