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.
Parents of children enrolled in special education should hand-carry all pertinent school and medical documents to include their children’s Individualized Education Program (IEP), current testing and evaluation reports
If your child requires specialized equipment (for example large print books, an FM trainer, or Braille services) contact the special education department at the school at Marine Corps Base Quantico.

Per MCO 1754.4C, the primary purpose of the EFMP is to ensure that the special medical and educational needs of the family member are considered during the assignment process.
Children from Birth to Three Years of Age
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires all States and territories to provide early intervention services to children from birth to age three who are developmentally delayed, or who are at high risk of being developmentally delayed. Early intervention services may be provided by local school districts or health departments. There is no common name across States for the programs, but you may hear them referred to as Part C programs (because Part C is the section of the IDEA that pertains to early intervention).
The National Early Childhood Technical Assistance Center provides a list of State Part C directors and funded programs at their web site.Military OneSource can identify local early intervention programs for you.
Children from 3 through 21 Years of Age
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires all States and Territories to provide special education services to children who are from 3 through 21 year of age. Each local school district has a special education director, and each school should have a case study committee or school based committee (terms differ) that attends to special education students’ needs.
Parents of children receiving special education and related services should hand-carry all pertinent school and medical documents to include their children’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) and current testing and evaluation reports to the new school.
The IDEA requires that if a child transfers to a district in the same state, the receiving school must provide comparable services to those in the child's IEP from the sending district's until the new school develops and implements a new IEP. If a child transfers to another State, the receiving district must provide comparable services to those in the child's IEP from the sending district until the receiving district completes an evaluation and creates a new IEP.

Special Education and Related Services
Special education and related services are provided at all of the base schools to address the needs of all students ages 3-21 years old in grades PK - 12 who meet DoDEA eligibility criteria. Students must reside in base housing to enroll in the base schools and to be considered for eligibility to receive special education services. In most cases, services are provided in the DoDEA schools located on the military installation. This service delivery model is in support of the inclusive philosophy held by DoDEA in which students are educated to the maximum extent possible with non-disabled peers in their neighborhood schools. Students with disabilities may receive special education support services in general education settings. In some instances, students with disabilities may receive individual and/or small group instruction in general education or resource room settings.
In a few instances, special education and related services that address all of a student's needs may not be able to be provided within the DoDEA schools. When such an occurrence arises, the Case Study Committee must locate an appropriate educational setting outside of the installation that can address all of a student's needs, including transportation, at no cost to the parent. Students with deafness who require services of a Teacher of Hearing Impaired (HI) within a HI program are likely to be recommended for placement in one of the surrounding jurisdictions. There is no Teacher of HI on staff at MCB Quantico. Historically, the Prince William County Schools District has provided qualitative program-based services for students with deafness.
For students with milder hearing impairments, a variety of support services including interpreter services (requires a 4-6 week turn-around time to contract for this service), classroom accommodations and/or modifications, and speech/language therapy services are available in the schools.
Students with visual impairments are served in the base schools, however, there could be a 4-6 week turn-around time to contract for this service as there is no Teacher of Visual Impairment on staff at MCB Quantico.
