Strategic Plan for Kansas Early Intervention Services

The Kansas Early Childhood Developmental Services (KECDS) Strategic Plan will outline strategies and objectives to address the specific needs of the Kansas early intervention program, in response to the Needs Assessment completed in September 2019. The Strategic Plan will result in recommendations and adopted strategies to support systemic program enhancements and support for local KECDS providers while assuring compliance with funding requirements and expectations.

Through this process, KECDS will:

  • Engage local KECDS networks to create a long-term vision for the program.
  • Identify systemic needs to support a quality system of supports for early intervention in Kansas.
  • Set overall aims for the state program for the next five years.
  • Develop a road map, including objectives and strategies, to support forward progress.
  • Provide collaborative opportunities for the state program and local networks.
