 HOW TO START

If you are concerned about your child’s development, you can make a referral to the Early Intervention Program. Professionals such as doctors may also refer your child, upon discussion with the family.
Infants and toddlers who live in New York City, from birth until three years old, that have a diagnosed physical or mental condition that is likely to result in a developmental delay or are suspected of having a developmental delay or disability will receive an evaluation to find out if they are eligible for the Early Intervention Program. Children must be eligible in order to receive services.
