Children's Integrated Services (CIS) is Vermont's early intervention program for infants and toddlers with developmental delays, and their families.

The CIS model improves child and family outcomes by combining services and funding.

Children’s Integrated Services (CIS) is Vermont’s unique model for combining early intervention with additional support services infants, children and their families.

These support services can be nursing, family support, early childhood and family mental health, and specialized child care services. They can also include child health care providers.

The CIS model includes:

  • family-centered holistic prevention
  • early intervention
  • health promotion services
  • effective service coordination
  • and flexible funding to address gaps in services.
