What are my rights and why are they important?

Rights protect your family and child. All families enrolled in early intervention programs in Nevada have the same rights.  Your rights within the early intervention process begin as soon as you are referred to a program and continue as long as you and your child participate in the early intervention program.  The IDEA, Part C law gives families’ rights.  You can find more information about these laws at:  http://nichcy.org/laws/idea

NEVADA EARLY INTERVENTION SERVICES (NEIS) SOUTHERN REGION
Serving urban & rural Clark, Lower Nye, Esmeralda, and lower Lincoln counties.  NEIS South is staffed by pediatricians, social workers, speech pathologist, audiologists, developmental specialists, nutritionists, physical and occupational therapists, and family specialists.  Services include comprehensive evaluations, service coordination, infant and toddler intervention, and specialty clinics such as genetics, craniofacial, and metabolic clinics.  Anyone who has concerns about a child and would like to make a referral should call the referral line at (702) 486-9200.

Individual programs can be contacted for general information, however all referrals must be processed through the central referral line at (702) 486-9200. Each individual program has a maximum limit to the number of children that they can receive at a given time due to budget allocations. Therefore, a family’s option to choose a specific program is dependent upon current availability. When a child has been assigned to a program, the family and child must remain with that program. If a child’s case is closed and then re-opened, then it is opened back with the previous program provider. If families have concerns about services or their procedural safeguards, then they are encouraged to review the Parent Rights Handbook or contact the Part C office.
