This program serves children (birth through age 17) who have significant medical and/or behavioral needs. These children are at high risk of out-of-home placement and require near constant line-of-sight supervision due to one or more of the following: (a) self-injurious or self-endangering behavior or medical condition which, without intervention, will result in a life threatening condition or situation; (b) a demonstrated pattern of serious aggression toward self, others or property; or (c) constant vocalizations which are a significant disruption to family life.
Early Intervention Services provide infants and toddlers from birth through age two, and their families with services and supports to enhance child development in the areas of cognition, speech, communication, physical development, motor development, vision, hearing, social-and emotional development, self-help skills; parent-child interaction; and early identification, screening and assessment services.
Family Support Services assist families with costs beyond those normally experienced by other families without children with a developmental disability, and to avoid or delay costly out of home placements.
Provides access to short-term low interest rate loans for families who maintain a family member with a disability in the home.
