Early Intervention Services

Early intervention services are for babies and children under the age of 5 years with developmental or social-emotional concerns.  Services help babies and children learn skills that typically develop during the first five years of life, such as:

  • Physical – Reaching, rolling, crawling, and walking
  • Cognitive – Thinking, learning, solving problems
  • Communication – Talking, listening, understanding
  • Social and emotional – Playing, feeling secure and happy
  • Self-help – Eating and dressing

Early intervention services help children reach their best and get ready for school.  In fact, children who receive services have higher school achievement and improved social-emotional skills.

Early intervention services help families.  Families can get emotional support when they feel alone or frustrated.  They can get information on how to best support their child.
