Early Intervention Program





Program Description








Rhode Island's Early Intervention Program promotes the growth and development of infants and toddlers who have a developmental disability or delay in one or more areas. Developmental disabilities or delays can affect a child’s speech, physical ability, or social skills. Children referred to the Early Intervention Program receive a comprehensive developmental evaluation to determine if they are eligible.  One of the goals of Early Intervention is to provide support to families so their children can develop to their fullest potential. Services are provided in places where children usually play or take part in daily activities.







Eligibility





Children must be under age 3 and have a developmental disability or delay in one or more areas.

Cost

There is no cost to families to receive Early Intervention services. Children do not have to be eligible for RI Medicaid to receive services.
