Early Intervention, or EI is a statewide system that provides coordinated services to parents of eligible children under the age of three with developmental delays or disabilities.
EI is grounded in the philosophy that young children learn best from familiar people in familiar settings. Every family served in EI will have a local EI team that consists of a service coordinator, service providers, and your family.
Your team works with you in your home or other places you and your family spend time to develop a coordinated plan called an Individualized Family Service Plan. You and your team will work through your plan building upon your existing supports and resources while discovering ways to enhance your child’s learning and development.
