ESIT's Data Management System


Printer-friendly version

The federal government requires ESIT to collect information about infants and toddlers, their families and resources in the early intervention system.

ESIT DMS Environments

ESIT has two environments for contractors to use:

  • The live system (production environment)
    The production environment is where official data entry occurs for children who are enrolled in ESIT. This system is not for practice or training.
  • The training environment
    The training environment includes sample data for new users to practice and become familiar with the system.

Both systems require a user name and password. Users who need access should first contact their own agency and/or local lead agency representative.
