EARLY CHILDHOOD PROGRAMS
Early Intervention: Early Intervention provides supports and services to families with infants and toddlers from birth up to their third birthday who are not developing as expected or who have a medical condition that can delay normal development. Early Intervention providers use coaching to help parents and caregivers interact with their children in ways that support learning and development during daily routines and activities in their natural environment. Anyone can make a referral by calling 276-656-0425 extension 102.
Healthy Families: Healthy Families home visitors are living, breathing how-to manuals, supporting expectant and new parents as they establish nurturing parent-child relationships, develop positive parenting skills, provide safe homes, learn to support healthy child development, and learn about community resources. Services are free and voluntary. Anyone can make a referral by calling 276-656-0425 extension 102.
Case Management for Children and Adolescents: Case Management for Children and Adolescents is a support system that assists individuals with diagnosed intellectual disabilities and/or developmental delays to plan and coordinate services. Child and Adolescent Case Managers have specific knowledge about child development and local resources for children and adolescents between the ages of 3 and 17. They assess the individual's needs and a service plan is developed to address their needs. These services are coordinated and monitored by the Case Manager who assures that the individual is receiving appropriate services. Anyone can make a referral by calling 276-656-0425 extension 101.
