Services

Since every child's needs are highly individual, the program developed for each child could contain one or more of the following services:

Consultation Services

Family Consultation - through family consultation our specialists work directly with family members to assist them in learning skills that will allow them help their child progress developmentally. This service may be provided in the child's home and/or other location such as the Early Intervention Program office based on individual family preference.

Community Consultation - some children may participate in a community preschool or daycare program to assist them in developing their skills. A specialist will assist the family in identifying an appropriate program for their child and work with the staff of the selected program in developing and implementing a program for the child.

Direct Services

Therapy Services - a child who has significant delay in the development of his/her gross motor skills may receive individual therapy from a physical therapist. A child who has a significant delay in the development of his/her fine motor skills may receive individual therapy from an occupational therapist. A child who has a significant delay in the development of his/her speech and/or language skills may receive individual therapy from a speech and language pathologist.

Classroom Services - families may choose to participate in Baby and Toddler groups for children under three years of age. These groups typically last an hour and meet once a week or bi-weekly. For children three to five years of age, the program offers a structured preschool class during the week.
