What is Early Intervention?
When children are evaluated by the early intervention team they may be deemed eligible for services. Services may include: speech therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, social work, nursing, parent training, hearing or vision services, and special instruction from early intervention specialists. Visits are typically delivered in the home or the most natural setting for families. We also offer some group instruction opportunities and visits at either our center in Vernal or Ft. Duchesne. All services are tailored to the individual needs of the child and family.
Children are considered eligible for early intervention services when 1 or more of the following areas are considered developmentally delayed or have concerns.
- Physical Development
- Speech, language, or communication
- Sensory processing
- Cognitive / Learning
- Social / Emotional
- Vision and Hearing
* Children who have a qualifying medical condition will be eligible to receive early intervention services.
An early intervention team will provide a comprehensive evaluation in all areas of child development to your child. This is usually done at your home or at our center. Usually, this will take about 60-90 mins.
Most of the cost for early intervention services is provided by state and federal grants but you may be responsible for a small monthly fee for services based upon a family income sliding scale. If your child is determined eligible for early intervention services then your service coordinator will review any possible fee you may have for services.
Typically, most services are delivered in the home. Some families will also choose to receive services at our center. Visits work best when performed in the child’s natural environment.
IFSP stands for Individualized Family Service Plan. This is the plan that is established with your family to setup goals and visits that you will receive. The IFSP is the record of your child’s progress and documents while he/she is enrolled in early intervention.
