CUPHD Early Interventions

Mission Statement

Central Early Intervention provides services to children to support and facilitate developmental growth and empower families for success in daily routines.

What Is Early Intervention?

Early Intervention is the process of anticipating, identifying and responding to concerns about a child’s development to minimize potential adverse effects and maximize healthy development. While all infants and toddlers learn at their own pace, some may need extra help to develop certain skills.

Who Is Eligible for Early Intervention Services?

Early Intervention provides support and services to families with children birth to age three who have developmental delays, disabilities, or diagnosed conditions, such as Down Syndrome or Spina Bifida.

Caring professionals provide a full evaluation or assessment of a child’s current development and a health review, including a hearing and vision screening, at no cost.

Baby Watch respects the routines of families. Services are provided wherever a child spends their day. This may be at home, a child care setting, or community program.
