Helping young children who are not learning, playing, growing, talking or walking like other children their age.
The Early Intervention Program helps young children (birth to 3 years) who are not learning, playing, growing, talking, or walking like other children their age. The program works with your family to set meaningful goals for your child and create a service plan to help your child and your family meet those goals. The earlier in life a child starts the program, the sooner they can learn the skills they need.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a therapy based on the science of learning and behavior. ABA therapy applies our understanding of how behavior works to real situations. The goal is to increase behaviors that are helpful and decrease behaviors that are harmful or affect learning.
Speech-language therapy addresses challenges with language and communication. It can help children with autism improve their verbal, nonverbal, and social communication. The overall goal is to help children communicate in more useful and functional ways.
Special instruction is an early intervention service that focuses on promoting caregiver – child interactions and supporting caregivers in learning new strategies they can use to enhance the child’s development and participation in the natural activities and routines of everyday life.
Professionals such as doctors can refer your infant or toddler to the Early Intervention Program when there is a concern about your child’s development.
If you have a concern, you can also refer your child to the EIP in the county where you live.
