UPDATE:As part of its increased fraud detection efforts, DES closed accounts with suspicious account information and activity located out of state. The majority of claims identified are believed to be fraudulent. Whenever additional fraud detection and prevention measures are put into place, there will be a small portion of individuals eligible for benefits who may be impacted by these measures. These individuals will still be able to access benefits. Impacted cardholders who believe they are eligible for benefits should contact DES directly at [email protected]. Once a case is validated as not being fraudulent, a new card will be issued to the claimant and the funds will be reloaded.
The Arizona Early Intervention Program (AzEIP) is Arizona’s statewide interagency system of services and supports for families of infants and toddlers, birth to three years of age, with disabilities or delays. AzEIP is established by Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), which provides eligible children and their families access to services to enhance the capacity of families and caregivers to support the child’s development.
In Arizona, a Team-Based approach is used to provide early intervention services. AzEIP contracts with private providers, known collectively as Team-Based Early Intervention Services (TBEIS) providers; to provide individualized support to all potentially-eligible and eligible children, and their families, within a given geographic region in Arizona. TBEIS providers work collaboratively with the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) and the Arizona Schools for the Deaf and Blind (ASDB) to provide services for children eligible for these service providing agencies.
The maps included on this page reflect the geographic service regions of AzEIP.
