Delayed
Development

Evaluating children for proper development is sometimes difficult since there is such a wide variety in the rate of different children.   Check with your doctor or compare your child with others of the same age.  If you have concerns then you should call this Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) line and have your child evaluated.  It can't hurt.  Satisfy yourself that your child is in the normal range.  ECI is paid by the government and can give your child therapy if they are behind the normal range of development or have disabilities.  They serve up to age three. 

ECI services for children:

  • Screenings and assessments, including hearing and vision.

  • Physical, occupational, speech and language therapy.

  • Activities to develop learning and eating skills.

  • assistive technology.

  • moving on to school or other services as needed at age 3 or when graduating from the program.

  • nutritional services.

  • supporting child care or preschool teachers of enrolled children.

ECI services for families:

  • education and counseling.

  • coordination of needed social and health services.

  • access to support groups.

ECI costs: nothing.
