Early Intervention Services

Early intervention includes a process of assessing for eligibility and providing support and services for eligible young children with developmental delays and disabilities, and their families. The goal of early intervention is to promote and foster development, as well as to build capacity of the family and immediate community to support the child long-term. Quality early intervention services can minimize the delays and challenges that some young learners experience. Research shows that early intervention services are key in promoting long-term positive outcomes for children with developmental delays and disabilities. If you have a developmental concern about your child, please call us to schedule a multidisciplinary evaluation for your child and family. We are here to help!
