A parent's relationship with his or her child is the most important factor in supporting development. Early intervention specialists partner with a family to promote its child's development and learning in everyday activities within their family and community.
The Infant & Family support Program staff will support each family to:
- Explore ways to play and interact to promote their child's development.
- Discuss issues relevant to their concerns, priorities and resources.
- Connect with other families of children with special needs.
- Incorporate learning opportunities into daily routines and activities.
- connect with other services.
The Infant & Family Support program offers services to infants and toddlers with special needs and their families at no cost to families. As part of California Early Start, Education Services include:
- Home Program for Infants and Toddlers
- Consultant Services for Infants and Toddlers
- Family Support Services
Services are available to children from birth to 3 years old who are showing significant delay in at least one area of development or have a condition with a known probability of causing a disability or delay.
