Who We Are

The Birth to Three Early Intervention Program helps families meet the needs of their infants and toddlers with a significant developmental delay or disability

Each family who is referred to the program has a Family Service Coordinator to help with the process of an evaluation to determine eligibility and, if eligible, a child assessment and family-directed assessment.

A plan, called an Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP), is developed by the family and the team for eligible child and their family. It is based on the identified strengths, needs and goals of the child and family and supports the child's learning and development.

Early intervention services are provided in places where children usually play or take part in daily activities.

Referrals can be made by a parent, physician, childcare providers, family members or anyone concerned about a child's development.
