WHAT IS INFANT & TODDLER CONNECTION OF CENTRAL VIRGINIA?
Infant & Toddler Connection of Central Virginia is part of Virginia’s early intervention system for infants and toddlers with disabilities and their families. They serve all localities of the Central Virginia Health District – Lynchburg City and Amherst, Appomattox, Bedford and Campbell Counties.
Early intervention supports and services focus on increasing the child’s participation in family and community activities that are important to the family. In addition, they teach parents and other caregivers how to help their children learn during everyday activities.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
Any infant or toddler (age 0-36 months) who is not developing as expected or who has a medical condition that can delay typical development may be eligible to receive early intervention supports and services. The intake or service coordinator will gather information needed to determine if your child is eligible. Generally, a child is eligible for early intervention if he or she is developing differently or more slowly than other children or has a health condition that will affect development.
A referral for eligibility can be made by a physician or hospital. Some families make their own referral.
IS THERE A COST?
Some services are at no cost to families. For specifics about costs, please see the Notice of Child and Family Rights and Safeguards Including Facts About Family Cost Share booklet.
