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?

The purpose of the Baby Watch Early Intervention Program (BWEIP) is to enhance early growth and development in infants and toddlers, who have developmental delays or disabilities, by providing individualized support and services to the child and their family.

Who Is Eligible for Early Intervention Services?

Early Intervention provides support and services to families with children birth to age three who may have developmental delays, disabilities, or diagnosed conditions, such as Down Syndrome or Spina Bifida. Caring professionals such as Early Intervention Specialists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech language pathologists provide services through a family coaching model that focuses on helping children meet goals in all areas of development. All services take place in the child’s natural environment (home, child care, etc.) and are tailored to meet the individual needs of the child and family.

Who Do I Call?

Any parent/guardian or professional who is concerned about an infant or toddler's development can make a referral to early intervention.
