What is the ICC?
The Massachusetts Interagency Coordinating Council (ICC) is a federally mandated statewide inter-agency group that advises and assists the Department of Public Health on Early Intervention. The ICC is comprised of parents, professionals and providers. Members of this dynamic group include representatives of state agencies (Department of Early Education and Care, Department of Elementary & Secondary Education, Department of Developmental Services, and others), higher education, one State legislator, one medical professional, EI providers, early childhood service providers, as well as parents. Staff from the Department of Public Health attends ICC Meetings on a regular basis. It is important that voices from all of these perspectives are shared and valued.
