Early Intervention Services (EIS) for ages birth to 3

Early Intervention Services (EIS) for ages birth to 3

EIS supports families who have concerns or questions about their infant or toddler's development. EI Services are provided to eligible infants and toddlers, with development al delays in language, motor, self-help, social skills, and problem solving. The family and early intervention professionals will develop an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP). An IFSP is a plan developed by the team members, to include the parents, which help guide the child's development.

EI providers help families identify if their child is delayed or is at risk for delays. The EIS Process is followed to determine if a child is eligible for services and what services will be provided on the IFSP. Early Intervention is tailored to support families and help children learn during day-to-day routines and activities. Services are provided in the least restrictive and most natural environment where the child and family spend their time rather than receiving services at the clinic. EDIS promotes family based care, actively involving families in all aspects of intervention.
