Serving children, 18 – 36 months
Early Intervention Services focus on young learners, children from 18 – 36 months, who have been diagnosed with a developmental disability or delay. Children enrolled in this program get the support they need to develop and grow in social, language, motor, and adaptive skills. The sooner we can get services to a child with a delay, the more promising his or her future. United Services runs three different small, low ratio classes for these young learners. Class days and hours vary with the individual needs of the children. As children’s first teachers, parents play an important role in all of our classrooms. Our early intervention specialists work with the family, and as a team they develop comprehensive strategies to assess the child’s strengths and needs, and build a program for each individual child.
Early Intervention Programs:
- Kid N Around: encourages development of age-appropriate play skills, social skills, and ability to follow classroom routines.
- Building Blocks: promotes learning appropriate and attentive behaviors, particularly in class routines.
- Building Blocks Intensive: designed for children who need intensive supports to learn to attend to people in their environment, increase social motivation and develop the basic skills of learning.
Funding for this program is received from the United Way and the Developmental Disabilities Resource Board.
