Infant Toddler Network
Spokane Regional Health District's Infant Toddler Network (ITN) is the single point of contact for anyone with concerns about the development of a local child, from birth to age three. Network staff, primarly family resource coordinators (FRCs) connect children and families with early intervention resources and services.
Family Resources Coordinators:
- Serve as a single point of contact for families

- Inform families of advocacy and peer support services
- Coordinate with medical and health care providers
- Identify and assist families in accessing resources for funding
- Coordinate all services across agency lines
- Develop an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP)
Early intervention services are designed for families to meet the developmental needs of the child. ITN contracts with five primary providers, throughout Spokane County, for early intervention services:

ITN receives funding through the Washington State Department of Early Learning's Early Support for Infants and Toddlers (ESIT) program, as well as by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA Part C).
