Early Intervention is a program that benefits children from birth to three years old who have or are at risk for developmental delays. A child with a developmental delay may have more difficulty than other children learning to crawl, walk or communicate. Certain biological, medical or environmental conditions such as preterm or low birth weight, children with chronic illnesses and factors of abuse may place a child at risk for developmental delay.
Children who are enrolled in early intervention programs tend to have higher self-esteem, greater school success, greater social and emotional competence and improved physical health.
A team of caring professionals will work closely with families to help them understand and address all concerns, answer questions and access any services for which they may be eligible. Families are encouraged to participate in developing an individual service plan that fits their lifestyle and is integrative to include the child’s everyday activities in their family and community setting.
Our team travels many miles to serve families in the counties of Colfax, Union, Harding, Mora and San Miguel.
How do I know if my family is eligible for EIS?
