The Indian Children's Program (ICP) strives to provide responsive, family-centered and community based services for Native American children with known or suspected disabilities. ICP programs embrace the spirit of cultural diversity, collaboration and innovation. ICP works to improve the quality of services for Native American children with special needs by facilitating integrated development of family and community capabilities and resources.
The ICP is a consortium of three universities-Northern Arizona University, Utah State University, and the University of New Mexico. The ICP staff, located in Flagstaff at NAU and Albuquerque at UNM, are teams of specialists including: speech-language pathologists, physical therapists, developmental specialists, and psychologists. The program serves children birth to 18 who reside on the Navajo or Hopi Nations or the Pueblos in New Mexico through direct service, technical assistance, and/or training, to meet their evaluation, planning, and/or service needs.
The ICP is funded by the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Indian Health Service.
