  • A developmental assessment and history of your child under three years old.
  • A family interview where your concerns, needs and priorities for your child will be discussed.
  • Determine Early On eligibility and coordinate an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) based on what you want to happen for your child.
  • Identifying and linking to community resources/services which address your child’s needs and priorities.
  • Provide monthly home visits, developmental activities, information, and service coordination.
