What happens if my child qualifies for services?

Posted by:

Children ages birth thru 2: must have at least 1 area of development that is -1.50 Standard Deviations below the norm

Children ages 3 thru 6: must have at least 2 areas of development that is -1.50 Standard Deviations below the norm

 

After a child qualifies for early intervention services, a meeting will be set up to discuss the child's individualized plan. This plan will determine what services are appropropriate, when and where services will occur, and what goals will be addressed based on the evaluation results.

For a child ages birth thru 2, this plan is called an Individualized Family Service Plan. 

For a child ages 3 thru 21, this plan is called an Individualized Education Plan/Program.
