Early Intervention (EI) 

Early Intervention (EI) is designed to serve young children, ages birth to five, who demonstrate behavioral concerns that could hinder their school readiness and academic success. Our team will assess children in the child care setting and in their home environment to provide brief interventions and strategies to the parents and providers. The EI team will provide education and information on early childhood development, behavioral strategies, behavioral coaching, mental health concerns, and educate and provide the team on referrals and linkage to additional supportive services within their community.

Working with the parents or guardians, child care providers and mental health clinicians, the program is designed to prevent future concerns and help prepare young children achieve social and emotional school readiness. When a child is not emotionally ready for school, he/she may not be capable of academic success. The program's  goal is to empower children to enter Kindergarten with the social/emotional skills needed to be  resilient, successful learners and reach their highest potential.
