Early Intervention Program

  • Do you wonder if your child should be talking more?
  • Do you think your child should be walking by now?
  • As children grow, they learn new skills. Children learn to crawl, walk, and talk by certain ages. If you think your child is developing slowly, Early Intervention can help. 

What is Early Intervention?

  • We can help a baby learn to roll over, sit up, and crawl.
  • We can help a child who has problems talking, hearing, feeding, grasping toys.
  • We can come to your home or to childcare.
  • We work with you to plan services for your child. 

There is no cost to families for any of these services, even if you have a higher income.

Who is Eligible?

We help children under the age of three who are developing slowly. We help children diagnosed with a physical or medical condition that delays development.

What Do We Do?

A service coordinator will arrange for your child to have a therapist come to your home to see if your child needs services. A therapist will look at how your child is learning, thinking, talking, listening, growing, and interacting with others.

We help set up free services for your child including:

  • Service Coordination
  • Speech Therapy
  • Physical Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Nutrition Services
  • Social Worker

Do you want to know when your child should be learning new skills?
