Early Intervention is a program offered nationwide designed to provide support to very young children who have demonstrated delays in development. Services support normal family routines and are provided in natural settings for children.
The mission of the New York State Early Intervention Program is to identify and evaluate those infants and toddlers whose healthy development is compromised and provide as early as possible appropriate intervention to improve child and family development.
To be eligible for services, children must be under three years of age and have a confirmed disability or developmental delay, as defined by the State, in one or more of the following areas of development: physical, cognitive, communication, social-emotional, and/or adaptive. Early Intervention services are available in every county in New York State.
RCN’s Early Intervention developmental group is fully integrated in our toddler child care room, with two groups available. Call 273-4858 for more information.
Our certified therapists and teachers provide intervention to infants and toddlers in their homes or child care settings always keeping family priorities and involvement as a high priority. RCN offers Special Instruction, Social Work, Vision services along with Speech, Occupational, and Physical therapies.
