This program serves families who have a child up to age 3 with a delay in development and/or qualifying diagnosis. An initial evaluation is done to determine if your child qualifies for the supports and services offered through the Early Intervention Program.
The following areas of development are considered when determining eligibility:
Adaptive (Self-help skills such as eating, drinking and dressing)
Cognitive (Thinking, learning, reasoning, playing and attention)
Communication (Interactions with others such as looking, listening, using sounds, gestures, and words to express and understand thoughts and feelings)
Physical (Body movements to change position or location such as rolling, sitting, crawling, standing, walking and using hands for reaching, playing or eating)
Social Emotional (Developing relationships, self-soothing strategies, getting along with others, and expressing feelings)
If your child is determined eligible for Early Intervention, a Service Coordinator will organize in-home or community based services. Your concerns and the needs of your child will determine which services are offered, and lead to an Individualized Family Service Plan. Our primary services include: Developmental Intervention, Social/Emotional Intervention, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech Language Pathology.
Please note that during the COVID-19 crisis, we are still accepting and processing referrals to the Early Intervention Program. An Intake Coordinator will contact families within 48 hours of receiving the referral to gather more information and discuss next steps.
