Early Childhood Intervention

Service available to address individual needs are occupational, physical and speech therapy, specialized skills training, counseling, family education, social work and case management, nutrition and nursing. ECI providers work with the child’s caregivers in the natural environment building intervention strategies into their everyday routines, thus optimizing the child’s opportunities for growth and development.
Eligibility for ECI services is based strictly on the child’s developmental delay or medical condition. ECI shares in the cost of services with families who are able to pay based on a sliding fee scale. Services that have no cost to families are evaluation, plan of care (IFSP) development, case management and translation.
