All children grow and develop in unique ways. Some experience delays in their development. ’Early Support for Infants and Toddlers,' formerly known as Early Intervention, refers to the services available to families with children under the age of three who are: 

  • not developing as expected
  • have a medical condition that can delay normal development
  • are for any other reason experiencing a developmental delay

If you have concerns about your child's development, check out our Growth and Development Flyer. Human Services funds agencies to provide a variety of early supports for infants and toddlers that benefit children and their families. If you have concerns about your child’s development you qualify to meet with a Family Resources Coordinator.
