Notification of changes to the list will continue to be preceded by a Provider Information Notice. Providers submitting requests to add new instruments must not begin to use any new tool until the provider receives notification from the Bureau of EI that the tool has been received and approved.
All instruments listed below may be used by any discipline/professional with training and credentials that meet the requirements specified within each of the particular test instruments.
In order to submit a new instrument to be approved and added to the list, the provider must present proof of the criteria listed below to the IDHS-Bureau of Early Intervention (EI) for the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services' (HFS) review and approval.
