In Wisconsin, each of the 72 counties are responsible for providing Birth to 3 services as outlined in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) 2004, a federal law that governs how states and public agencies provide early intervention, special education, and related services to children with disabilities. The Wisconsin administrative code (DHS 90) is designed to match the federal guidance.
This section provides guidance and resources to support counties in serving Birth to 3 children and their families.
Please see the Outreach at a Glance for Counties (PDF) guide for information on scheduled contacts between local programs and DHS.
