Lincoln County Interagency Coordinating Council

The Lincoln County Interagency Coordinating Council (ICC) is a part of the Birth to Three Early Intervention System in Lincoln County.  The purpose of the council is to make sure that early intervention services in our county are delivered in a way that is family friendly. The goal is for the family to get the best services possible when they have a concern about their child’s development.  Another function of the council is to work on ways to increase access to services for children and families.  The council meetings are open to the public and are held at Lincoln County Commissioners Chambers.

Children with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN)

Lincoln County Health Department offers families of children with special health care needs access to a Public Health Nurse for care coordination.  The Public Health Nurse can assess both the child’s and the family’s needs, help plan for medical care, and assist in finding resources and obtaining services.  The Public Health Nurse can meet with the family in their home or other chosen location or can consult with the family over the phone if they prefer.  There is no financial eligibility requirement for these services and there is no charge.

Eligibility:

Children must be under the age of 18 and with a condition that may prevent them from growing, developing, or playing like other children, or that places them at risk of becoming disabled or handicapped.
