This month, we feature Resources to Help Prevent and Address Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). ACEs are potentially traumatic events during childhood — exacerbated by COVID-19 — that are associated with worsened health in adulthood. This page features screening tools and resources for policymakers, providers, and others working to prevent ACEs and address their impact. View other resources at the Healthy Child Development State Resource Center. Submit new resources to email@example.com.

(Illinois ABCD III Project) This form is used by Early Intervention to report back the status of a referral to the referring source and PCP. Part I is used initially to indicate whether early intervention has been able to reach the family and assign a coordinator. Part II is used later to inform the referring source and PCP about early intervention eligibility and services. The state will continue to make changes to this form in an effort to make it more compatible with state EI reporting systems.
(Illinois ABCD III Project) This form may be used by any service provider to make referrals to early intervention, with releases needed for early intervention to provide information back to both the referring source and the child’s PCP.
