Infant-Toddler Services (Kansas Birth to Three)

Infant-Toddler Services is a comprehensive, statewide system of community-based, family-centered early intervention services for young children (birth through age 2) with disabilities and their families.

Many local agencies provide an array of services to eligible children and their families utilizing a variety of public and private resources. Services are designed to meet the special needs of the child and family and are identified through a multi-disciplinary assessment process and provided through an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP). Family members are important partners in this team approach to provision of services.

Early intervention services that are available to eligible children and their families based on needs include: speech, occupational and physical therapies, audiology, special instruction, family training, assistive technology, social work, vision, psychological, and nutrition services. There also are specific types of medical, health, nursing and transportation services available. A family service coordinator is available to assist families with the evaluation and eligibility determination, IFSP development and service provision, including assistance to ease the transition to Part B Special Education Services when the child reaches age 3.
