Quality IFSP Practices

You are here

Over the years, Missouri First Steps has developed a variety of tools to help with quality IFSP practices through a collaborative process involving stakeholders and national experts. The tools were designed to rate the quality of IFSP practices on a scale of unacceptable/emerging,  acceptable/satisfactory or best practice. While no longer a monitoring standard for Service Coordinators, the information in the rating scales continues to represent quality IFSP practices.
