  • Early intervention services

    Early intervention services are structured and coordinated to facilitate the achievement of optimal development through the provision of prevention, assessment, education, development, and/or therapeutic services to infants and toddlers with disabilities or who are at risk of developmental delay and their families. Early intervention focuses on helping infants and toddlers learn the basic and brand-new skills that typically develop during the first years of life. Broadly speaking, developmental delay means a child is delayed in some area of development. There are five areas in which development may be affected: 

    • Cognitive development.
    • Physical development.
    • Communication development.
    • Social or emotional development.
    • Adaptive development.

    Assessment is conducted to determine each child’s unique needs and the early intervention services appropriate to address those needs. Families are the primary decision makers in the planning of early intervention services along with personnel relevant to the services being provided. Family-directed services also help family members understand the specific needs of their child and how to enhance the child’s development.
