Infant Intervention Program
Early Intervention for Infants and Toddlers is a federal grant program that assists children with disabilities from birth to age 3. Early intervention means doing things as easily as possible to work on the child's development, health, and support needs. It gives specialized support to children and their families. Education services, counseling, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech therapy are all services that can be provided in home for children, as needed.
Early intervention uses a coaching model, that allows for providers to teach parents and care givers, within a natural setting (home, daycares, etc.), how to promote development for their child in ways that the family is able to carry out on their own.
Each family is assigned a Service Coordinator who follows up with the families and helps to develop goals and care plans for each child, centered around the families' concerns and lifestyle. Service Coordinators follow the child throughout their time receiving Early intervention services, and assist the families with the next steps after aging out of Early Intervention or going into the local school systems. Early Intervention services not only provide supports and opportunities for the child's development but for the family as well.
