According to research, the Early Intervention Program has been proven to improve the child’s five areas of development. The Early Intervention Program was designed in order to diminish the effects a diagnosis of Autism, diagnosable conditions, or developmental delays may impact a child’s overall development. These areas of impact can include cognition, communication, social-emotional, adaptive, and the physical areas of development (fine/gross motor). The Early Intervention Program is designed for children from birth (0) to three years of age (3). The earlier the child with a disability or suspected disability can start the program, the sooner the child can attain all milestones needed to attain their functional goals and be integrated into their communities.
The Early Intervention Program is at no out-of-pocket cost to the families. If your child has health insurance, including Medicaid, the insurance will be used to pay for the Early Intervention Services. The Insurance benefits allotted for your child’s medical visits will not be affected by the participation in the Early Intervention Program.
The Service Coordinator is typically the first person the family meets to explain the Early Intervention Program process, services, and the rights of the family in participating in the program. Service coordination is one of the most important aspects of Early Intervention. Service Coordinators are advocates/case managers who will follow all the steps in identifying the concerns, priorities, and resources for the child/family unit. Our Service Coordinators are highly trained to be the liaison between the family, child, the municipality, and the clinicians assigned to the child. Our Service Coordinators facilitate the family in making informed decisions for their children’s service and participation in the Early Intervention Program.
We provide Early Intervention Services in more than 15 languages.

NEW YORK EARLY INTERVENTION
The Early Intervention Program (EIP) is a public program funded by New York State and county governments for children under the age of three who are either suspected of having or at risk for developmental delays or disabilities. Potentially eligible children must be referred to the county program to receive EIP services.
NEW YORK CITY (311)
All EIP services are provided at no cost to parents. Health Insurance may be used for approved services. A child’s eligibility for the program can be determined only by state-approved evaluators under contract and all services must be authorized by the county. If a child is found eligible for the EIP, all needed early intervention services are identified in collaboration with the parent and must be authorized by the municipality. The municipality will arrange for service providers, considering the individual needs of the child and family, to deliver services authorized by the municipality. Our agency is approved by New York State and has a contract with New York City to provide early intervention services.
