    Mission and Objectives

    It is the mission of the Bucks County LICC to promote community linkages between existing resources for children with special needs and their families. We work to provide training, enhance communication, ensure community awareness, explore and help develop new models of service and maintain an active political voice to create the best possible early intervention system for the children and families of Bucks County.

    Our objectives are to:
    • Increase parent involvement in community early intervention
    • Bring together interested parties to make recommendations to develop, review, and enhance local practices and concerns in accordance with best practice and state and federal law
    • Identify local community issues and work to address them.
