Early Intervention (birth-3) - Parents understand that the early years are the most important in a child’s development. At the same time, a parent might not know what to do if they suspect a developmental delay. Our team helps parents determine their child’s needs through an assessment, and if necessary, provides the support services needed. Examples of these services include: early childhood, development and education, nursing, physical, occupational or speech therapies, and social emotional help, to name a few. We offer most of these services in the child’s home making it convenient for parents and more effective for children.
