The Early Intervention Program is a family-centered program for developmentally delayed children from birth to age three. Parents are an important part of the total program which includes a developmental evaluation to determine eligibility into the program. Individual sessions are in the child’s natural environment-mostly the child’s home. The core team of professionals may include a special education teacher, speech-language pathologist, occupational therapist, and/or physical therapist. The team works with families and children to improve developmental skills in the areas of motor abilities, self-care, play skills, communication, and socialization.
Early intervention services are funded in part by a grant from the New Jersey State Department of Health and Senior Services-Early Intervention Program and by Hunterdon Medical Center.
