Early Intervention Services
Assisting Families and Children

Wesley and Landon are off to preschool!

Early Intervention Services are:

  • Are designed to meet the developmental needs of each eligible child and the needs of the family related to enhancing the child’s development;
  • Are selected in collaboration with the parents;

“Three years ago our family was blessed with the birth of our sons Wesley and Landon.  Born too early at 23 weeks, their early survival was nothing short of a miracle.  After 5 long months in the NICU, surgeries and countless hours of dedicated therapy, today we are the proud parents of preschoolers!  With the loving prayers of friends and family, and with the amazing team of medical and teaching professionals, our dream of raising a family came true.  Thank you for helping our family become whole, for the dedication and hard work, and for being a part of our family”
