Our Early Intervention Program is designed to work with families and their children, birth up to age 3, who are developmentally delayed or at-risk for delays due to a medical diagnosis. A child can be referred by anyone who is concerned about their development, including physicians, hospitals, and family members. The Early Intervention Program provides information on child development and various disabilities as well as linkages to other possible service providers and resources. Additional program components include specialized instruction and parent education. Many of the services are provided in the family home or in the community.
Eligibility and Referral
Any child, birth through 2, will be evaluated by a team in all areas of development: cognition, fine and gross motor, social/emotional, adaptive (self-help) and communication. Screenings are also administered for hearing, vision and nutrition. Based on the evaluation results and team recommendations, a child is eligible for services with a delay in one area.
