The program provides services for infants and children (ages 0-3) who have developmental delays. Early intervention offers families: service coordination to assist with the process, an evaluation of child’s needs, an individualized family service plan (if child is eligible), and services that may include (but not limited to) speech therapy, physical therapy, special instruction and family training and support. The Early Intervention Program is funded by the NYS Department of Health.
Our service coordinators help parents with each step of the Early Intervention Program. They help parents obtain the services, coordinate EI services with other services the families may be getting and make sure all services are delivered according to the Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP). We have service coordinators who speak various languages.
We provide multidisciplinary evaluation by our professional team, which includes NYS Certified Special Education Teachers, Speech and Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Licensed Psychologists, Social Workers, Vision Therapists, and Nutritionists. We assess each child’s strengths and needs in each area of development (physical, cognitive, speech/language, social/emotional, and adaptive development).
Our Multidisciplinary Evaluation Team provides individual reports, as well as an extensive Evaluation Summary. Evaluations are conducted at home or at our center. We have many bilingual professionals who can provide evaluations that are sensitive to the families’ languages and cultural backgrounds.
We provide the following therapeutic services:
- Special Instruction including ABA Therapy
- Speech/Language Therapy

Our services are both home and community based. Bilingual Services are available in various languages.
