• Referrals

    The Hood River County School District EI/ECSE program maintains a "single point of entry" procedure for referral into the program. Families, friends, physicians, and/or any community agency can make a referral by calling 541-386-4919. Evaluations are typically conducted in the child's home or the program office but can be arranged at another location if more convenient for the family.

    There is no cost to families for the eligibility evaluation or for the services provided to children who are eligible for either program.

    The EI/ECSE program is administered through Hood River County School District. The EI/ECSE program employs teachers, speech language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, school psychologists, and instructional assistants to provide a full range of services to eligible children. EI/ECSE staff work closely with the following agencies in providing these services:

    • The Next Door, Inc
    • Hood River County Health Department
    • Department of Human Services
    • Mid Columbia Children’s Council
    • Oregon Child Development Coalition
