Early Childhood Connections in conjunction with the ECHO Screening and Evaluation Program offers in-depth developmental evaluations using certified therapists and early childhood special educators for children less than three years of age if a problem in development is suspected.
A Service Coordinator helps the family assess resources and identify needed services such as therapy or Family Support Services.
The Individual Family Services Plan identifies the child’s needs and the family’s priorities for their child. The plan is reviewed at least every six months.
Together the family and Service Provider develop a Transition Plan to prepare for a change from infant/toddler services to preschool special education services if needed or other community early childhood programs when the child turns 3 years.
