The Tennessee Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (DIDD) is excited to welcome the Tennessee Early Intervention System (TEIS) into its department. This follows the announcement first made in December 2019, when Gov. Bill Lee issued Executive Order No. 10 transferring the program from the TN Department of Education to DIDD. It was announced that the transition would officially happen on July 1, 2020.

TEIS is a voluntary program that provides services to children from birth through age two that may have developmental delays or disabilities.  TEIS is governed by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Part C.  It is provided to children and families at no cost.
