Early Intervention - Ages Birth to 3
The DD Early Intervention Program is for children age birth to 3 who show evidence of a developmental delay. Emphasis is placed on working closely with the family, acting as a resource and consultant for the parents.
An Early Intervention Specialist supports each child and family enrolled in the program. This is a professional position requiring a minimum of a Bachelor's degree in a related early childhood field and an additional 20 semester hours of training in child development, disabilities, family dynamics and assessments.
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.
