Rhode Island's Early Intervention system, under the lead agency of the Executive Office of Health and Human Services, is pleased to announce a new certification program to give Early Intervention Level 1 providers the opportunity to advance to Level 2 status. This Certificate Program was created to recognize, and systematically enhance the skills of current Level 1 staff while increasing the workforce capacity for our Early Intervention system. The Certificate advisory and approval process will be overseen by the Sherlock Center on Disabilities.
The following documents will provide information and help current Early Intervention staff to initiate an application to the Certificate Program.
