Information for Families

Our goal is to support families in helping their children learn and develop. If your child is found eligible, your Early Intervention team of providers, ongoing service coordinator and the Early Intervention Official Designee (EIOD) will learn about your child from you. You know your child best, and are the most important part of you child’s team.

The Early Intervention Parent Guide provides helpful information about the program, including referrals, Eligibility & Services, who will be working with your childwhat to know about EIP, and your rights.


When Do Children Leave the Early Intervention Program (Transition)?

The EIP is for children ages birth to three. Children may leave the program at any time. Around the time a child turns two, families and their EI team will start working on a plan for the family’s next steps after leaving or transitioning out of EIP.

Some children may be eligible for preschool special education after they leave the EIP. This is provided by the Committee for Preschool Education (CPSE) through the Department of Education. A Side by Side View of the EIP and CPSE.

If you have any questions or concerns about the Early Intervention Program, you can contact the Early Intervention office at 845-486-3518.
