What is Early Intervention?

The Early Intervention Program is a program for infants and toddlers between birth and 3 years old designed to provide education and assistance to eligible children. In order to be found eligible for Early Intervention services, a child must be evaluated and determined to be exhibiting a developmental delay that meets eligibility criteria determined by New York City Department of Health Early Intervention Program and New York State Department of Health Early Intervention.

An Early Intervention evaluation is of no out-of-pocket cost to participating families, and services for children found eligible for Early Intervention services are of no direct cost to their families. New York Child Resource Center, Inc. is an approved provider of evaluations, as well as home and center-based services.
