ACDS’ Early Intervention (EI) Program is dedicated to providing children, from birth to age 3, with special instruction and related services.

EI services are offered in a home-based setting, center-based classroom or clinical setting, or through a combination of home/center-based interventions in accordance with the family’s Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP).

Infants and toddlers who are at high risk for developmental delays due to genetic disorders or who demonstrate cognitive deficits, speech and language delays and/or physical disabilities receive a variety of services. These include multidisciplinary evaluations, hands on guidance and instruction from certified special education teachers and therapy services delivered by licensed physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech and language pathologists.

Audiological and nutrition services are also provided as warranted.

Parents are actively involved in determining developmental goals for their children and work collaboratively with teachers and therapists in an effort to integrate interventions naturalistically into the child’s daily routine and home environment.

We are currently authorized to conduct half day and full day center-based developmental groups and for parent-child groups for eligible children.
