About Early Intervention
Early Intervention (EI) supports families who have children birth to three years old experiencing developmental delays or medical conditions that may cause developmental delay. Through coaching, EI helps caregivers build learning opportunities into natural activities and routines that occur during their child’s daily life. It promotes team work among parents, service providers, medical teams, and other caregivers. Eligibility is based on standardized testing, the child’s medical history and informed clinical opinion. Parents are the lead in developing a roadmap, including supports and services, to help them meet their child’s needs. Service Coordination is provided to help families manage their EI program and to help locate and access community resources as needed.
