The ECI Program Network is the backbone of ECI—putting ECI's mission, values, and goals into action and making sure each child receives the best start in life. ECI programs provide services in all Texas counties through contracts with local agencies and organizations. As a result, families have equal access to all services that ECI offers wherever they may reside in Texas. These services may include screening and assessments; physical, occupational and speech language therapy; and special instruction, training and counseling services.

ECI programs include community centers, school districts, education service centers, and private non-profit organizations. Staff from these programs may include early intervention specialists, nurses, psychologists, dieticians, paraprofessionals, teachers, social workers, and physical, occupational, speech and language therapists.
