FAQ for Parents

What is PIC?

During the early years of children’s lives, they develop very important skills including how to play, learn, speak, and act. PIC provides help for families whose children experience developmental delays and disabilities living in Anchorage, Girdwood, and Whittier.

How can PIC help me help my child?

PIC offers services for children from ages birth to 3 years and their parents. If you have concerns about your child’s development, a PIC provider can meet with you to discuss them. You and the PIC provider will work together to develop a plan to help your child learn and grow.

Who sees my child’s health and developmental information?

Programs for Infants and Children, Inc. (PIC) adheres strictly to the Health Insurance Portability and Accessibility Act (HIPAA). Protected health information is strictly confidential and will not be given to anyone without the required releases and prior authorization. In addition, The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. Infant Learning programs, like PIC, receive funding from the U.S. Department of Education so PIC is required to follow not only HIPAA but also FERPA. Generally, Infant Learning Programs must have written permission from the parent or in order to release any information from the child’s record.
