What happens if my child is found eligible?
If a child is found eligible for the Early Intervention Program (EIP), all needed early intervention services are identified in collaboration with the parent and must be authorized by the municipality. The municipality will arrange for service providers, considering the individual needs of the child and family, to deliver services authorized by the municipality.
In what setting does City Pro provide Early Intervention Program services?
We provide services in the child’s natural environment, which is generally the home but which may also be in a day care or another setting familiar and comfortable for the child. When early intervention services are delivered in child care settings or community locations that require a fee, the parent is responsible for paying any costs associated with access to such child care or community locations.
