Infant Toddler Program Early Intervention

Children referred to the Infant Toddler Program are assessed to see if they meet program eligibility. If eligible, an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) is written that outlines services for the child and their family.  This plan is reviewed every six months. At three years of age, ITP assists with the child's transition to a developmental preschool program or other community services.

When eligible, early intervention services meet developmental needs of the child and the needs of the family to support the child's development. Research shows that infants and toddlers learn best through natural routines and everyday learning opportunities that occur in the child's home, community, and childcare settings. Based on the unique needs of the child, the Infant Toddler Program works with the family as a team to support the child's learning and development.
