Various government-sponsored early intervention programs are available to help parents with concerns about their child’s development. These programs work with parents and other family members to create an individualized family service plan, or IFSP, that outlines services and goals for their child.
What are 4 types of intervention options?
Early Intervention Services are designed to help children grow and develop at a healthy pace. These services are available for children aged birth to three, or who are at risk for a delay or disability. The Early Intervention Program is funded by the Department of Public Health and private health insurance. It provides services to children who meet eligibility criteria, regardless of race, gender, or handicap.
Early Intervention services are provided by trained specialists who work with parents to determine the best way to address their child’s developmental needs. These services may include a variety of activities that can be done at home, or they may require healthcare professional assistance.
The Early Intervention Program provides services to children who have been referred to the program by a child’s paediatrician or other health care provider. The child must meet certain criteria for a physical or mental condition or a substantial delay. The child’s parent or guardian must sign consent for evaluations to be performed.
The service coordinator is the initial point of contact for the Early Intervention Program and is the person who will help parents choose an evaluation agency. The service coordinator will also work with the family throughout the program. The service coordinator will help the family understand their child’s needs and create strategies to incorporate intervention strategies into the child’s daily routines.
