Helping children and families wherever they choose to live, play, and spend their day.

Ohio’s Early Intervention System serves children from birth to age 3 who have a developmental delay or a diagnosed medical condition likely to cause a  delay. Service Coordinators provide screenings, Individualized Family Service Plan development, transition services, referrals/resources, linkage to specialized services, and coordination of evaluations and assessments.

 

The goals of the program are:

‚Äč

  1. enhance the development of infants and toddlers with disabilities;

  2. reduce educational costs by minimizing the need for special education through early intervention;

  3. minimize the likelihood of institutionalization and maximize independent living; and

  4. enhance the capacity of families to meet their child's needs.

 

Who is eligible for Early Intervention? 


Children under the age of 3 with a qualifying developmental delay or disability or qualifying medical diagnosis.
