The federal government requires ESIT to collect information about infants and toddlers, their families and resources in the early intervention system.
ESIT DMS Environment
- Live system (production environment)
The production environment is where official data entry occurs for children who are enrolled in ESIT. This system is not for practice or training. The system requires a user name and password. Users who need access should first contact their own agency and/or local lead agency representative.
- The ESIT DMS Training environment is no longer accessible. Please direct questions related to completion of the T-DMS Modules to the MERIT Service Desk, at firstname.lastname@example.org. For related guidance: ESIT Required Training Programs.
