We support infants and toddlers through Early Intervention (0-3 years old)
Early Intervention (EI) Services are for children younger than 3 and their families. In Ohio, early intervention is a statewide system with coordinated supports at the local level.
The Early Intervention team helps with priorities related to your child’s development and finds ways to support your child during everyday activities.
EI is grounded in the philosophy that young children learn best from familiar people in familiar settings.
