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.

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?
No, supports and services are free to all eligible children and their families.
