Dear Ms. Musgrove:

Attached is the Illinois Department of Human Services (IDHS) submission of the federal fiscal year (FFY) 2009 Early Intervention (Part C) Annual Performance Report (APR) and the FFY2005-2012 State Performance Plan (SPP). Both documents have been posted on the IDHS/Early Intervention web site (http://www.dhs.state.il.us/page.aspx?item=36192). They will also be made available through links from the other Early Intervention web sites (i.e., Early Intervention Training Program, the Early Intervention Credentialing Office, and the Early Intervention Clearinghouse). In addition, the APR and SPP documents are available for review by the pubic at each of the 25 Child and Family Connections (CFC) offices.

The FFY2009 APR provides target data for the state and its 25 CFC offices for the time period of July 1, 2009 through June 30, 2010 and responsive APR information for all indicators. Information to address actions required by the Office of Special Education letter in response to the Illinois' February 10, 2010, has been included. A copy of the Interagency Coordinating Certification of Annual Report is enclosed. The SPP provides annual target values and improvement activities for each indicator through FFY2012.

If you have any questions on the information presented in this document, please contact Janet Gully, Chief of the Bureau of Early Intervention, at (217)782-1981.

Sincerely,

Ivonne Sambolin-Jones, Director
Division of Community Health and Prevention
