Help Enrolling in Early Intervention (0-2 years)

 
492440-removebg-previewEarly Intervention Website by the Department of Education
311 (ask for Early Intervention)
 
The Early Intervention (EI) Program helps young children (birth to 3 years) who are not learning, playing, growing, talking, or walking like other children their age. The program works with your family to set goals for your child and create a plan to help your child and your family meet these goals. 
 
EI provides free, evidence-based physical, cognitive, social, and adaptive therapies for children under 3 years of age with developmental delays. It is available to all eligible New York City children, regardless of race, ethnicity, income, disability, or immigration status, and services are provided at no cost.
 
Children that are eligible for Early Intervention services (therapy) are those who:
► Are younger than 3 years old (must refer before 2 years and 11 months)*
► Have a delay in one or more of the following areas of development: physical (motor skills), cognitive, communications (verbal/talking), social-emotional, and/or adaptive.
 
In order to receive services, a child must have a 33% delay in one functional area or a 25% delay in 2 or more areas. Exception: If a child has only a communication delay, they have to score 2 standards below the mean in an assessment of that skill. Children with known medical diagnoses that have a high probability of resulting in developmental delay such as Down’s Syndrome are automatically eligible for services.
 
*If your child is 2 years 11 months or older and you think he needs special education, visit “Preschool Special Education Services”.
 
How can I get services?
Speak to a social worker for assistance (ask your child’s doctor for a referral). Doctors can also make a referral by completing the Early Intervention Program Referral Form. Alternatively, you can call 311 and ask for “Early Intervention Evaluation Services”.
Important note: Expect delays from the EI agency that will provide evaluation services for your child. During the pandemic, operations have changed as well as the availability of service providers. Please be patient while EI agents are doing their best to contact your family.
 
What happens after my child gets referred?
1. A service coordinator will contact you. They will explain what are the EI services, begin the evaluation process, and then select with you an agency to use for the evaluation. (This same person will continue to provide assistance while your child is in the program.)
2. Your child will have an evaluation by a specialist from the agency you select. The evaluation will tell you if your child is behind in developing skills compared to other children their age (like taking the first step, smiling, waving).
3. If your child has a delay, they may be eligible for EI services.
 
Remember that therapeutic early intervention services have been shown to improve developmental outcomes, mitigate behavioral concerns, and increase caregiver confidence.
