The Early Intervention Program

The first three years of life are the most crucial period of growth and development. It is during this time that young children explore and grow, learn to move, communicate, and develop a sense of independence. All children grow and learn at different rates, however, some children may appear to achieve developmental milestones later than anticipated.

What is the Early Intervention Program?

Early Intervention Programs and services have been established across New York State to address the needs of infants and toddlers, ages birth to three years who are suspected of having developmental delays. Our Early Intervention evaluators and Early Intervention professionals help your child grow, explore, learn to move, communicate, and develop a sense of independence, while sharing with you the tools you need to support and promote your child’s development.

What Children Need Early Help?

If you feel your child is delayed in achieving developmental milestones, you should speak with your child’s pediatrician about your concerns.    If you need a pediatrician, ACT can refer you to one.

The Referral Process

Trained professionals, in collaboration with parents, assess a child’s current development. If the evaluation determines that the child is eligible for Early Intervention services, a multidisciplinary team of professionals will work together with the child’s family to tailor an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) that best serves the needs of the child. Service providers, are then contacted, as authorized, to implement the Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) to stimulate the child’s growth and development.
