What to Expect
The Early Intervention team conducts an evaluation and guides you through how early intervention works.
Once your child is determined eligible for early childhood intervention services, your Primary Service Provider and Help Me Grow Service Coordinator will discuss with you the goals, priorities and needed support for your child. A plan and schedule will then be outlined through an Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP).
At the end of scheduled visits, your Primary Service Provider will provide you continued development activities you can do with your child during family activities and routines.
Services, determined based on the specific needs of each child, may include:
- Developmental screenings, assessments and evaluations
- Speech-language pathology and audiology services
- Occupational Therapy
- Physical Therapy
- Psychological Services
- Vision Services
- Social Work Services
Early Intervention Eligibility
Eligibility determination for services begins with our partners at Help Me Grow. If you are concerned that your child is not meeting developmental milestones, such as speech, fine motor skills or mobility, or your child has been diagnosed with a developmental disability such as Down Syndrome, Autism or a genetic condition, please contact Help Me Grow to get started. Your service coordinator from Help Me Grow will assist you through the intake process.
