Services for Children 0-3

Early Intervention

This program embraces a family-centered approach which ensures young children with disabilities and their families the supports and services necessary for the child’s growth and development. Families of children ages birth to three who have concerns about their child’s development are eligible to apply for this program. Anyone can make a referral for Early Intervention services by calling  Help Me Grow at (740)374-4954. Help Me Grow will contact our Early Intervention department as appropriate.

Supports and services are unique to the needs of every family. When a family is referred for services, an evaluation for eligibility is completed. After eligibility is determined, each family receives a comprehensive assessment. From this assessment, an Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP) is formulated which targets the needs of the family and child. Early Intervention supports and services are provided to families within natural environments and routines by a primary service provider from your Early Intervention Team. Strategies used are designed to build upon the family’s strengths and wishes. 

Early Intervention Teams consist of:

  • Developmental Specialist
  • Physical Therapist
  • Speech/Language Pathologist
  • Occupational Therapist


Purpose of the project

Increase early and timely access to a standardized, comprehensive diagnostic evaluation for children with concerns in language and social development, including ASD.

Specifically, the goal is to offer a process and a structure that enables parents to obtain a timely diagnosis for their child so that the child can receive early intervention and obtain supports and services, as needed.
