Overview of Early Childhood Intervention
Children grow and learn important skills during their first three years. All families
want their children to grow and reach their potential, but families of children
with disabilities, or delays in development face unique challenges and need extra
(ECI) is an important
resource for all families.
ECI goes to families. Our
work is where babies and toddlers live, learn, and play.
ECI staff and your family will be partners during these important
first three years of your child's life.
ECI Staff focuses on your child’s strengths and encourages your family to do the
same to help your child progress. ECI staff works with your family in making decisions
about services that will meet your child’s needs. You will be involved in all assessments
and intervention planning. All assessment and planning services are provided in
the home or daycare at no cost to you. Developmental services are provided on a
sliding fee scale for families whose incomes are more than 250% of the Federal poverty
