Publicly provided services are mandated by law to help your baby and your family. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires each state to provide early intervention services. How and what each state provides varies. An overview of the law, IDEA Part C, and links to resources to help you find services for you and your baby are available through the Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. See also http://www.wrightslaw.com/info/ei.index.htm
