Early Intervention

Parent with a child in the EI program

Evidence-based early intervention supports are provided to families and caregivers with young children, ages birth to 3, in homes and community settings. The purpose of EI is to build upon and provide support and resources to enhance the development of infants and toddlers through everyday learning opportunities. Families are encouraged to share their interests, priorities, needs and questions with a service provider and set goals based on how their child’s progress fits with what is important to the family. 

Our goal is for the child’s family to learn from our team of highly trained professionals so they can work with the child in the home during the family’s everyday routines.

Children participate in Dr. Seuss Day Center-based and itinerant preschool services are available to children with disabilities ages 3 through 5 years. Center-based services are provided to preschoolers with disabilities and their typically-developing peers in classrooms located at the Lawrence County Early Childhood Center and Ironton classroom.

Preschool services provide children with many opportunities to become actively involved in their learning. Providers believe that strong partnerships between families and those who teach, coach, or mentor their child are important to present and future educational and life successes.
