Track your child’s milestones here.
The goal of the Early Intervention Program is to help you to help your child reach his/her developmental potential.
Early Intervention services are provided to help children grow and develop. Services are also provided to help caregivers care for these children.
Any child from birth to age three with a developmental delay, disability, or condition that affects development may need help.
A checklist of children’s developments from birth to age three is available in the Early Help Makes a Difference! guide.
You can review the Parent’s Guide to Early Intervention here.
Early intervention services include:
All service providers are employed by or contracted with Greene County and have been approved by the New York State Department of Health to provide services.
There is no direct cost to you or your family for services authorized by the Early Intervention Program, even if your insurance company does not pay us. You do not pay a co-pay and your insurance company cannot change payments against an annual cap or lifetime reserve.
Please consider becoming a Parent Member of the LEICC! This Council meets approximately 4 times a year. Here are some of the topics that are covered by the council:
(1) the planning for, delivery and evaluation of the early intervention services for eligible children and their families, including methods to identify and address gaps in services;
(2) the identification of service delivery reforms necessary to promote the availability of early intervention services within natural environments;
(3) the coordination of public and private agencies;
(4) such other matters relating to early intervention policies and procedures within the municipality as are brought to its attention by parents, providers, public agencies, or others.
