How to Make a Referral

The first step to making a referral is parental consent. Early ACCESS services are voluntary and if parents are unaware the referral is made, they are often hesitant to schedule the evaluation. In some situations, a parent may not be ready to begin a discussion about their child's development. For suggestions on talking with parents about this sensitive subject, click here.

To connect to Early ACCESS by phone, call 1-888-IAKIDS1 (1-888-425-4371). Intake and Referral Specialists are available Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. to complete the referral and answer any questions you may have about the Early ACCESS process.
