Birth to Three Program

The Birth to Three Program is an individually guided program of early intervention services available to help families meet the developmental needs of their children. Children are found eligible if it is determined they have a delay in their development or have a diagnosed condition which will likely result in a delay. Each county is mandated by state and federal laws to offer its own system to provide these services. Anyone can make a referral to the program and it is a voluntary program for the families that are involved.

  • communicate and understand other's communication (speech and language development)
