Overview

What is Early Intervention? Early intervention is a program that provides services to children from birth to age three who have, or are at risk of, developmental disabilities. Services are provided at no cost to the families of eligible children, regardless of insurance coverage. Early Intervention assists and empowers families to meet their child's and their own needs and entitles children, regardless of race, ethnicity or income, to services based on the child's individual eligibility. Services may include speech therapy, occupational therapy, physcial therapy, special instruction, social work, nutrition, vision, hearing or and/or behavior services.
