The Brockton Early Childhood Intervention Program is a public health program that provides therapeutic support to infants and toddlers who have developmental delays or are at risk for such delays.
Early Intervention provides developmental assessments and services to children, birth to three years old. Early intervention eligibility is open to children with the following challenges:
- A delay in reaching age-appropriate milestones in motor, speech and language, cognition, social-emotional, and adaptive development.
- Diagnosed with a physical, emotional or cognitive condition that may result in a developmental delay.
- At risk for a developmental delay due to biological or environmental factors.
The goal of the Early Intervention is to assess and provide services to children, as early as possible, so they can reach their full potential. Early Intervention is an open referral program which includes: initial evaluation, individualized planning, developmental goals, home, community and center-based services and transition planning.
