The Early Intervention program, administered by the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS), provides services and supports to infants and toddlers with developmental delays and their families, in accordance with Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). These services may include, but are not limited to, speech therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, psychological services, and service coordination.
The services are intended to minimize developmental delay, maximize potential for independent living, and reduce costs to society by minimizing future need for special education and related services.
