Early Intervention Resources & Services in Your State

Much has been written about the importance of a child’s first five years of life. What a baby does and experiences during these early years gives him a foundation upon which later skills are developed. That’s why it’s so important to identify which babies can benefit from early intervention.

In some states, if your child is eligible for early intervention, you will receive these services at no charge.  Other states may charge a fee, depending on the agencies involved.
