Early Steps of SWFL
- EARLY STEPS OF SWFL
- The Southwest Florida Early Steps program serves infants and toddlers in Collier, Glades, Hendry, and Lee Counties and is part of the Florida Early Intervention Program. Florida's Early Intervention Program is improving its service delivery system to better support infants and toddlers and their families - in places where they live, learn and play. An enhanced family-focused early intervention system called Early Steps has replaced the former Infants & Toddlers Early Intervention Program with a new Mission, Vision and Values.

Starting January 2012, we would like to improve the delivery of information for our families. We know many of you would rather receive an email than a printed communication. That’s why we would really appreciate your input by signing the attached electronic communication release, if you feel this would be a better way to serve you.
Signing for electronic communication will help us lower mailing cost, and we will be able to utilize this money for better purposes, like educational scholarships or funds for families in need.
We will also be contributing to our natural environment, saving trees and resources that usually end at the trash can.
You can also download and mail this electronic communication release by visiting our blog at www.earlystepsswfl.blogspot.com
Thanks for your attention. Please do not hesitate to contact me for extra info.

A partir de Enero 2012, nos gustaría mejorar la entrega de información a nuestras familias. Sabemos que muchos de ustedes prefieren recibir un correo electrónico en vez de una comunicación impresa. Este es el motivo por el cual apreciaremos que firme la autorización de envío de correo electrónico, si considera que este será un mejor método para servirle.
Registrándose para comunicaciones a través de correo electrónico nos ayudará a reducir costos, para utilizar este dinero para el uso de becas y fondos para educación.
También estaremos contribuyendo a nuestro medio ambiente, salvando árboles y recursos que la mayoría de las veces terminan en la basura.
Puede descargar esta comunicación electrónica visitando nuestro blog en www.earlystepsswfl.blogspot.com (Porfavor no envíe informacion personal por correo electrónico)
Gracias por su atención. Porfavor no dude en contactarme para mayor información.

Each month, White House staff who work on disability-related policies host a public, live-captioned conference call to keep the public better informed about important developments on many different disability issues. These calls also connect you to leaders in the federal government who work on these issues. Over the past several months, monthly conference calls have featured discussions on accessibility, employment, education, technology, emergency preparedness, transportation, healthcare and the federal budget.
The White House is now offering the opportunity for you to suggest topics you'd like discussed during these calls. Send in your ideas about subjects for discussion, as well as the federal officials you'd like to hear from on these subjects, by visiting https://www.disability.gov/WHQuestion.
Visit Disability.gov for information about these and many other subjects:
. Finding employment
. Help finding and paying for housing
. Laws that protect your rights as a person with a disability
. Disability benefits
. Scholarships and other financial aid
. Federal government grants
Looking for organizations, programs or services near you? Visit Disability.gov's Information by State section.
