The Early Childhood Service Intensity Instrument (ECSII) Tool and Training Available at No Cost

The earliest years of life are the optimal time to build supportive and healthy child/caregiver relationships. Positive experiences help young children build brain architecture, and they help to set skills necessary for healthy development. Establishing strong, healthy relationships from the start can lead to optimal development and lessen chances for engagement in unhealthy behaviors as children grow to adulthood and beyond.

Anyone who works with infants, toddlers and children ages 0 to 5 can use the Early Childhood Service Intensity Instrument© (ECSII), a standardized, biopsychosocial assessment tool to improve their ability to provide services.

AHCCCS offers training on how to use the ECSII. The training is available at no cost to health care providers and anyone who works in the behavioral health field with this population.
