Local Interagency Coordinating Councils, or LICCs, are comprised of community members with a vested interest in an interagency system of service provision for children birth to five and their families. LICCs are responsible for responsible for many things, from child find activities, to communication and collaboration among community partners on issues pertinent to the population they represent. LICCs can help with activities such as child find, public awareness, and professional development, in addition to advising the lead agency with matters of policy, resource development, and much more. The state of Kansas Administration Regulation 28-4-565 states that “Each community shall have a local interagency coordinating council (LICC) that has as one of its purposes, the coordination of early intervention services for infants and toddlers with disabilities and their families”.

LICC representatives:

  • Michelle Kelly

  • Judy Martin

  • Barry Pickens

  • Lisa Polka

  • Linda Gallagher

  • Leigh Anne Neal

  • Kaitlyn Boyer

“We know that early intervention can have a powerful impact on the child’s outcome. It can mean the difference between a child reaching their innate potential or being limited in an unnecessary way because they did not receive appropriate treatment. In our case, Infant Toddler Services of Johnson County provides that crucial early intervention that can make all of the difference in the life of a child and their parents.”
