Early Intervention • Developmental Disabilities • Occupational Therapy • Speech Therapy • Hearing Screening • Assistive Technology • Physical Therapy • Medical Services • Vision Screening
Early Intervention services support the development of young children with disabilities and delays. Infants and toddlers are tested to see if there is a delay in movement, learning, dealing with others, behavior, and/or self-help skills. If needed, a service plan (IFSP) is written to set goals and identify needs. Families, with the support of service providers, help infants and toddlers reach their goals.
