The Early Intervention Program aims to identify and service children under the age of three with developmental delays and disabilities. Parents with concerns regarding their child's development can have their infant or toddler evaluated by an interdisciplinary team at absolutely no cost to the family. The Home Visiting Program provides expectant or new parents with the information, support and encouragement they need through a voluntary, high-quality home visiting service. Home visiting aims to educate at-risk parents with the resources to understand and capitalize on the optimal early years of a child's life. By supporting the positive interaction with children in stable and stimulating environments, the Home Visiting Program seeks to create a sturdy foundation for future achievement.
Effective August 1, 2017, all referrals for children birth to three must be managed by the statewide Help Me Grow Central Intake and Referral system. The system accepts and manages all referrals for Help Me Grow home visiting programs and early intervention services.
