who is the LICC?
Local Interagency Coordinating Councils (LICCs) are community-based advisory groups. Each county should have a LICC. Local service providers and parents work together to make sure that all families know about early intervention services.
what we do
The role of the LICCs is to:
develop and distribute county specific public awareness and child find materials;
support interagency partnerships and information sharing;
promote parent and family involvement in all community events;
support community efforts that involve children with special needs and their families.
To find your LICC, contact Laura E. Curtis, NC Interagency Coordinating Council Coordinator, at 919-707-5532.
LICC HighlightMADISON COUNTY LICC
The Madison County LICC has found a new way to provide child find activities within a rural mountain community. They hold an agency fair at the Madison County preschool/childcare graduation ceremony. Attendees may have young children, or know of someone with a young child that may need early intervention services. Graduates and their families receive a colorful bag when they arrive. The bag has an invitation to visit agency booths after the ceremony to receive a graduation gift. Families receive an assortment of school supplies. This is an opportunity for agencies to talk to families about their programs and take referrals. It successfully matches kids with community supports and services that can help them. This is a win-win event for all. Plans for the LICC are to host the event again this year.
