boy4Program Description

Early Intervention (EI) serves children from birth to three years of age. These children range from:

  • at-risk infants with drug or alcohol exposure
  • children with mild to severe developmental delays
Services available include:
  • occupational therapy
  • physical therapy
  • speech therapy
  • developmental therapy
  • family support and training
  • multi-discipline playgroups
  • child-find screenings, evaluation and assessment, referral and transition planning

The EI program also serves children who were in the program beyond the age of three, during the transition period to their school district services.

All programs are staffed with licensed and/or credentialed professionals who work as a team to best help the child and his/her family.

Services are provided to stimulate the motor, language, cognitive and social development of the children in order to promote their functional independence and ensure the fullest integration possible into their community living environment.
