Early Intervention Programs: A State by State Guide to Getting Started

Early intervention is a vital resource for children who are showing signs of needing extra support. In summary, early intervention plays a crucial role in identifying children's developmental needs, providing targeted support, and maximizing their potential. By intervening early, children can receive the necessary resources and interventions that can positively impact their development, enhance their overall well-being, and set them on a path toward future success.


You can check out our earlier post on early intervention, to get a better feel for what it is, how it helps and how it can serve your family. Because we understand that it can be overwhelming to sift through all of the resources, this post is to provide links to the resources in your state, making it easy for you. To utilize this state by state guide to early intervention services, simply head on down to the state you live in, and you can find a link to that state's program, as well as best contact info. Happy Hunting!
