Early intervention in Washington is implemented through ESIT contracts with local lead agencies (LLAs) who may also contract with provider agencies and individuals to serve families in their communities. 




Local Team Self-Assessment and L-COMS Self-Assessment

The purpose of Washington’s Child Outcome Measurement System (COMS) is to assure stakeholders that early intervention makes a difference for infants, toddlers and families. Families are a crucial source of information about their children, and this enhances the quality of the data. The COMS is one way for families to see their child’s progress and to give input on program improvements. The data is analyzed at state and local levels to help improve services and meet federal and state reporting requirements
