Early Intervention is a system of services for kids from 0-3 years old who might be behind in their development. Learn how the services can help your child, and how to apply.
Does your child seem behind in their development? Do they not have the same skills as other kids their age? Early Intervention can help! The program offers services that teach you – the parents – to help your child practice skills through play. There are also services to support your family. This program is offered in all states, but this Guide will tell you how it works in Massachusetts.
If your child starts these services early, it can make a big difference in how well they develop and adjust to school later on.
We can’t promise you’ll get the perfect services, but we can help you see what your options are.
This Guide will help you:
- Learn how Early Intervention can help your child and your family
- Apply through a local agency
- Get an evaluation to see if your child qualifies
- Set up a good plan of services
- Know what to expect when your child turns 3 and transitions to special education services
