Early intervention program, Information, & Resources

Early Intervention Program

Early Intervention provides services to infants and toddlers who have disabilities or developmental delays. Early intervention promotes the development of the child while building the strengths of the family. Services are provided by qualified educators who are experienced in working with young children with special needs, helping families incorporate developmental practices into their daily routines, and assisting families in locating needed resources in their community.
