The Early Intervention initiative is a community-based program for children from birth to 3 years of age with developmental disabilities. These services are provided free of charge to children who qualify.
Does This Match Your Family’s Needs?
Most children grow and learn at about the same pace. If your child is not developing at about the same rate as most children, he or she may be experiencing a developmental delay. Areas of possible delay include how your child:
- sits, crawls, stands, walks
- babbles, talks, gestures
- feeds, dresses, drinks from a cup
- plays with others, smiles, expresses feelings
- thinks and solves problems
Services Offered by Early Intervention:
- Service Coordination
- Physical Therapy
- Occupational Therapy
- Speech Therapy
- Special Instruction
- Family Trainer
- Assistive Technology
Early Intervention provides developmental evaluations and individual therapy sessions, as well as parent training. Sessions may be provided in the home, your child’s daycare, or in the mother’s day out program.
