Exceptional Family Member Program

EFMP Logo

EFMP Overview
Military families with a special needs family member, also known as Exceptional Family Member (EFM), often require additional help in meeting the EFM's needs. To support families with special needs, the Army created the Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) in the early 1980's.

The Army designed the EFMP to be a comprehensive, coordinated, multi-agency program that provides community support, housing, medical, educational, and personnel services to military families with an EFM.

Two types of EFMP Registrations:

1-Special Medical Needs -Family members of Soldiers may qualify as an EFM with special medical needs if they have one of the below conditions/needs:
•Potentially life-threatening conditions and/or chronic medical/physical conditions requiring  frequent follow-ups or specialty care.
•Current and chronic (6 months or longer)mental health condition within the last 5 years or the  need for frequent mental health services.
•Diagnosis of asthma or other respiratory-related diagnosis with chronic recurring wheezing.
•Diagnosis of attention deficit disorder (ADD) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
•Adaptive equipment required.
•Assistive technology devices or services required.

2-Special Educational Needs -Family members of Soldiers are considered to have a special educational need if they have or require one of the following:

•Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP), age birth to 3 years.
•Individualized Education Plan (IEP), age 3 years to 21 years.

Overseas Screening
The Army wants to ensure Soldiers with Exceptional Family Members are assigned to locations where their family members can receive the necessary care. In many locations, the Army also considers the availability of health care from the host nation. If a Soldier is requesting authorization for accompanied travel to overseas assignments including Alaska and Hawaii, then they must have their family members screened for special needs.
