Services are available to children who are determined eligible for Early Intervention Services due to a qualifying medical diagnosis or due to developmental delays. This approach recognizes that you are your child’s first and most important teacher. You will be supported by a team that includes Early Intervention Specialists also known as Developmental Specialists, an Occupational Therapist, a Speech Therapist and a Physical Therapist. Each of these team members has extensive knowledge of infant – toddler development.
Your team will offer regular visits at your home, daycare, or other community setting most appropriate to meet your goals. The team will show you how to use everyday routines and preferred activities to foster your child’s development and to expand your child’s opportunities for learning throughout the day. The Early Intervention team will actively monitor progress and collaborate to offer updated recommendations and support regularly.
