Autism 101: Online Course 16
Early Intervention Services: Birth to 3 Years
All states have an Infants and Toddlers with Disabilities Program to provide developmental and other supportive services to children with developmental disabilities from birth up to age three.
To be eligible for this program, a child must:
- be between birth and 36 months of age, and
- have a diagnosed developmental disability or be significantly delayed in one or more aspects of development.
Families concerned about their child’s development can contact the Early Intervention Program in their state. A team of professionals will come to the home, evaluate the child and provide necessary services at no cost to the family.
