About Early Intervention
- Early Intervention Services are available to children less than three years of age who have or are suspected of having a developmental delay and/or disability.
- The New York City Early Intervention Program is a public program funded by New York State and county governments.
- All children must be referred to the New York City Early Intervention Program’s “totline” in order to access services. The "totline" can be reached by calling 3-1-1.
- Early Sprouts is approved as a provider of Early Intervention services and evaluations, and is under contract with New York City to deliver services.
- Eligibility for the New York City Early Intervention Program can only be determined by State-approved evaluators under contract with the municipality.
- If a child is found eligible for the Early Intervention Program, 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.
- When Early Intervention services are delivered in child care settings or community locations that require a fee, the parent is responsible for paying any associated costs with such access to child care or community locations.
