The Early Intervention program is for children birth to age three who have a developmental delay or disability. Services are designed around the child and family needs, concerns and priorities related to the development of the child & provided in natural learning environments such as the family home, child care setting, playgrounds, or other community settings.
Service co-ordination/case management is provided for every child and family to help determine the child’s needs and provide measurable goals. The parent’s involvement is of key importance for the success of this program. Other services may include developmental intervention, speech-language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy and other areas of expertise.
This is a program that is funded by a variety of sources (private insurance, public funds, state and federal dollars, and donations from various organizations, and individuals). Services are accessed through Child Find where a multidisciplinary evaluation is done to determine eligibility.
