How do I refer to Early Intervention?
Use the Standardized Illinois Early Intervention Referral Form. Full completion of the form provides the EI team with information helpful to determine appropriate evaluations and services for the child. Send the form by fax to the appropriate Early Intervention Child and Family Connections office (CFC) based on the child’s zip code. If faxing is impossible, you or the parent may call the CFC directly. The local CFC can be located through the DHS Office Locator.

What is necessary for EI records when retiring?
I would contact Monitoring for that information. That would be the office that would potentially audit your work after retirement. I do know that records must be kept for six years after the child has aged out of the program.
