Is My Baby OK?

Early Intervention Can Help your Child

The goal of the Early Intervention Program (EIP) is to support families in helping their children learn and develop. The EIP interventionist’s job is to help families understand their children’s strengths and abilities, using everyday activities to help their children develop.

If your child is found eligible for the EIP, your Early Intervention team of interventionist(s), service coordinator and Early Intervention Official Designee (EIOD) will learn from you. You know your child best, and are an important part of your child’s team.

Tell the team about:

  • your child’s interests, and what helps him/her learn;
  • what he/she does and does not like; and
  • everyday activities that are hard for you to do with your child.

► See Information for Parents about Early Intervention for more information.
