Early Intervention programs help children ages 0-3 with developmental delays or disabilities. Intervention is vital during this very early time because this is a crucial time of development where a child learns and develops at the fastest rate. Every state is mandated by the federal government to provide services but how well does your state do?
Easter Seals has just published a report, Our Nation’s Children At Risk: A State-by-State Report on Early Intervention that provides a state by state snapshot of early intervention services. The full report is available online. You can also read more about early intervention on UCP’s My Child Without Limits Website.
