Maryland Online Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP)

Maryland’s Online IFSP is a secure web-based application that serves as the primary case management tool for service coordinators and providers working with children Birth -Kindergarten and their families who receive early intervention services under Part C of IDEA (including those participating in the Extended IFSP Option). The main user function performed by the Online IFSP is the development and monitoring of individualized intervention plans for young children with disabilities and their families. In addition to guiding users through the IFSP development process, the Online IFSP also allows users to create and monitor referral and team meeting information. Providers can generate individual progress monitoring reports for the children and families with whom they work.

Local and state leaders can utilize the data analysis functions of the Online IFSP to generate a variety of predefined and dynamic reports to assist programmatic decision-making. The Dynamic reports feature allows users to generate customized reports for their own individual or jurisdiction’s needs by selecting from almost any field/variable in the database to customize an analysis.

The Online IFSP also includes an interactive Outcomes Wizard that assists early intervention teams in moving smoothly and effectively through the development of appropriate outcomes for children.  The Wizard provides step-by-step support for each stage of IFSP functional outcome development, including an easily accessible review of a child’s present levels of development, a child’s strengths and needs, a family’s concerns, priorities, and resources and a family’s daily routines in natural environments.
