 PURPOSE

Child and Family Connections receives all referrals for children needing early intervention services. This agency will assist families with evaluations and assessments of their child, age birth to three years, to determine eligibility for early intervention services. An Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP) is then developed to help the child learn and grow and link them to services.

Early intervention is for families with infants or toddlers ages birth to three years, who have concerns about how their child is developing. Children having one or more of the following conditions may be eligible for early intervention services:

Children with suspected delays such as:

* Diagnosed vision or hearing loss * Difficulty speaking clearly or understanding language
* Difficulty with movement * Behavior difficulties

Children having one of the following conditions may be automatically eligible for early intervention services:

* Cerebral Palsy * Spina Bifida
* Down Syndrome * Cleft Palate
* Drug Exposure * Other Conditions
* Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

Early intervention services include one or more of the following:

* Audiology * Physical Therapy
* Assistive Technology * Psychological Services
* Developmental Therapy * Social Work Services
* Medical Services * Speech-Language Therapy
* Nursing Services * Transportation (limited)
* Nutrition Services * Vision Services
* Occupational Therapy

Child & Family Connections (CFC) case managers will manage each case as long as the family is eligible and will assist in transitioning into the school system at age.
