Description of Service
Program for children birth to 3-years-old who have been identified with special needs and meet the eligibility requirements. Designed to help families better meet the needs of their child. Through a family training model, services are provided in the child’s natural environment with the active participation of their parents and other caregivers. These services can include: home-based instruction, physical, occupational and speech therapies, case management services, and tracking/monitoring a child’s development.
Yes. Building entrance and within the building.
Call and ask to speak to a Service Coordinator. Basic information will be gathered and an appointment will be arranged to begin the process of assessment to determine if a child is eligible.
A child referred to the program will receive an evaluation conducted by a trained professional who will assess all five developmental areas (cognitive, physical, social/emotional, self-help, and language/speech.) If the child shows a delay of 25% or more (in months) in at least one of the five areas, they are eligible for services. There are additional criteria based on informed clinical opinion and diagnosed medical conditions which have a high probability of resulting in developmental delay.
Fees or Charges
Most services are provided at no cost to the individual and/or family. Fees are based upon income and the individual or family is aware of all costs up front. However, all services can be arranged regardless of an individual's ability to pay.
When a service is provided that requires payment from the recipient, a financial determination form is completed.
