Child Find Program (270-2655)
Child Find is the primary referral source for the Early Intervention Program for children ages birth to three. Through Child Find, children who are at risk for developmental delay or disability are monitored. The Child Find staff works closely with your child's primary care provider to monitor your child's developmental progress. If a potentially qualifying disability or delay is identified, your child will be referred to our Early Intervention Program for evaluation.
Early Intervention Program (270-2654)
Upon entering the Early Intervention Program, your child will be evaluated for developmental delay. If your child qualifies, services for your child can be provided in your home free of charge. Services include further evaluation if needed, vision and hearing, speech, physical, and other therapies; child development groups and family counseling. These services are provided free of charge to help your child grow and develop, and to help you care for your child. For more information about this program, click here.
