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:
enhance the development of infants and toddlers with disabilities;
reduce educational costs by minimizing the need for special education through early intervention;
minimize the likelihood of institutionalization and maximize independent living; and
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.
The Help Me Grow Early Intervention Program is administered by Washington County Family and Children First. If you need further assistance please call our office at (740) 374-4954.
