Tennessee’s Early Intervention System (TEIS)

Tennessee Department of Education

Division of Special Education


The primary goal of EI is to support families in promoting their child’s optimal development and to facilitate the child’s participation in family and community activities. The focus of EI is to encourage the active participation of families in the intervention by imbedding strategies into family routines. It is the parents who provide the real early intervention by creatively adapting their child care methods to facilitate the development of their child, while balancing the needs of the rest of the family.
