Complete an online referral
The first step will be to go onto the Department of Economic Security website and fill out an online referral. https://azeip.azdes.gov/AzEIP/AzeipRef/Forms/Categories.aspx
After the referral process has been initiated, AzEIP has 45 days to evaluate, make an assessment, determine eligibility, and create an initial Individualized Family Service Plan(IFSP).
Children are found to be eligible for the program if they are 0-36 months of age if the child has not reached 50 percent of the developmental milestones expected at his/her chronological age or has established conditions with a high probability of developmental delay.
