Indian Children's Program

Welcome to the Indian Children's Program

The Indian Children's Program (ICP) was a collaborative project formed by UCEDD programs at Utah State University, Northern Arizona University, and the University of New Mexico. Started in 1991, the ICP provided family centered and community based services to Native American children with disabilities living in the Four Corners area.

The program operated for 23 years and served thousands of children and their families. The ICP was funded through grants and contracts from the Indian Health Service and the Bureau of Indian Education.

ICP addressed critical service needs for children with disabilities in Native American communities. In addition to diagnostic services, ICP provided case coordination, therapeutic services, training, and technical assistance.

In November, 2014, after 23 years of service, the ICP was disbanded. The ICP team worked with the families it was then serving to refer them to other agencies and programs.

Please follow the links below to connect to the original ICP partners. They continue to provide clinical services, training, and technical assistance to programs serving Native American children with disabilities and their families.
