Early intervention services can have a definite, long-lasting impact on how children grow, learn, and regulate their emotions. When a child enters into our Early Intervention program they receive a multi-disciplinary team evaluation. If needed, from this evaluation a child is made eligible for program services and an Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP) is created. Our specialized team members work with the child and family to carry out the IFSP and meet Early Intervention needs in the natural environment(s).
