Early Intervention

Early Intervention works in partnership with families to promote the growth and development of infants and toddlers. Our services help children from birth to three years of age who have or may have a disability, are experiencing developmental delay, or are at risk for significant developmental problems.

Early Intervention consists of a multidisciplinary team, which works in partnership with families. The team works diligently to provide services that are respectful of a family’s values, incorporating strategies into a child’s natural environments – meaning everyday life routines and places. All services are family-centered and individualized to ensure the most successful outcomes for a child and their family.

Who is eligible?

Children ages birth through three who are developmentally delayed or have a diagnosed physical or mental condition that has a high probability of resulting in a developmental delay are eligible for early intervention services. The determination of a developmental delay must occur either through the use of a norm referenced standardized tool that identifies the delay, or through the use of informed clinical opinion the multidisciplinary team identifies that has an impact on child/family functioning to the degree that without intervention developmental delay would result.
