Early Childhood Evaluation Program

Before A Referral

If your family is currently receiving early intervention (EI) services, please talk with your service coordinator to decide if an ECEP evaluation may be right for your child and how to refer to ECEP.

If you are not receiving EI services, call ECEP at (505) 272-9846 or 1-800-337-6076. It is highly recommended that you have your child evaluated by an early intervention provider to begin services, if they are necessary.  ECEP does not provide ongoing therapy or EI services. Please call BabyNet at 1-800-552-8195 for information on these services in your area. Your local EI provider can carry out an initial developmental evaluation and arrange ongoing therapy/EI services for eligible children ages birth to three.

Please note that ECEP evaluations are scheduled after referral paperwork is received. ECEP typically schedules evaluations 4-6 months from the time of the referral, based on demand and location.
