The Early Intervention Program is a family centered program for infants and young children ages birth to three, with developmental delays or who have a diagnosed condition with a high probability of developmental delay. The program emphasizes the earliest possible identification of infants and toddlers with disabilities. Family participation is encouraged and services are provided in the natural environment for the child whenever possible. Eligibility is determined by a multi-disciplinary evaluation and services are based upon individual child's needs. These services may be direct or consultative and may include speech, physical and other therapies, child development groups, family counseling, and transportation. There is no direct cost to the family. Reimbursement is sought from third party payers, but by law, cannot affect a family's insurance lifetime cap or any deductions. To refer a child to the Early Intervention Program, call the Special Children Services Intake Coordinator at 435-3230.
