Contact information for key programs and services at this installation.
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, or IDEA, requires states and territories to provide early intervention and special education services to eligible children and young adults. Early intervention services, or EIS, are available for children from birth to 3 years old, and special education services are available to children from 3 to 21 years old. Installation EFMP Family Support providers can provide specific information and resources for these services.
All states and territories must provide early intervention services to children who have, or are at risk for having, developmental delays, from birth to their third birthday.
Most CONUS locations, local school districts or health departments provide these early intervention services. The program is called different names in different areas, but it is often referred to as Part C because that is the section of the law that pertains to early intervention. The Education Directory for Children with Special Needs has a list of resources specific to each state to help you determine who you should contact. Your installation EFMP Family Support provider can also answer your questions.
If you are moving OCONUS or to a CONUS location with a DODEA school (and you live on installation), your child will receive EIS through the Defense Department’s Educational and Developmental Intervention Services, or EDIS, program.
When moving, you should hand carry copies of your child's most current individual family service plan, or IFSP, and the most current evaluation reports to your new home to ensure they are not lost.
All states and territories provide special education and related services to eligible children between the ages of 3 through 21.
When a child transfers to a different district in the same state, the new school must provide a free, appropriate public education, including comparable services, until the previously held IEP is adopted or a new one is developed and implemented. When a child transfers to another state, the receiving school must provide comparable services until an IEP review can determine if a new evaluation or IEP is appropriate.
If you are moving and your child receives special education and related services, you should hand carry all necessary school and medical documents, including the most current IEP and current evaluation reports. Hand carrying these documents ensures that they are not lost and allows the new school to begin the process as soon as you arrive.
The Air Force’s Exceptional Family Member Program is designed to provide support to military family members with special educational or medical needs. If you currently have a family member enrolled into the program you should contact the EFMP-Medical office upon arrival to Dover AFB. It is located within the 436th Medical Group at 300 Tuskegee Blvd. and is open Monday – Friday, 7:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. The Special Needs Coordinator can be reached by email at email@example.com or by calling 302-677-2408 or 677-2598/ DSN 445-2408 or 445-2598.
Upon receiving an assignment, each member will need to complete the EFMP medical screener using the MyVector link at https://myvector.us.af.mil. The AF4380 and AF1466 forms are no longer being utilized. You should receive an e-mail from AFPC notifying you to go to vMPF to complete the initial briefing. Once complete, you will receive another notification to go to MyVector to complete your Travel Screening Questionnaire. Screeners in MyVector will load 8 months before your RNLTD or if the RNLTD is sooner it should be available once the assignment is loaded.
