Parents are regarded as the primary teacher for their children. In addition to the Early Intervention  Specialist, other professionals who may provide services are: Speech  Language Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Physical Therapist, Nursing  and others as needed or requested.

Parents and staff together decide  how the baby or toddler is developing, what may be needed to help and  put together a plan of service called the Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP).

The Early Intervention program  works in collaboration with other county agencies such as Help Me Grow  and Project Child to provide comprehensive services for families.

Early Intervention is a program provided by Logan County DD, which is  publicly funded through local tax levies, state and federal revenue  sources.
