Infant-Toddler Services provide the foundation and framework to build capacity for local tiny-k programs in creating positive outcomes for children and families.
Kansas Infant-Toddler Services (authorized by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act - IDEA Part C) is administered by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE). KDHE provides grants to tiny-k programs to assist in maintaining and implementing a statewide system of coordinated, comprehensive, multidisciplinary early intervention services for infants and toddlers with disabilities (birth to age three) and their families. KDHE is responsible for assuring availability to eligible children and their families. During the State Fisical Year 2019, over 10,700 children received early intervention services.
