Infants and Toddlers Program
The Montgomery County Infants and Toddlers Program is the local system of early intervention services for children birth through thirty four and a half months of age and their families. When an infant or toddler is suspected of having a developmental delay, a referral is made to the program. Children are eligible if they meet the following criteria: demonstrate a 25% delay in one of the developmental domains, have atypical development or have a high probability condition that would likely result in developmental delays.
The program includes a developmental assessment; a review of family concerns; priorities and resources; meetings with the family to develop an individualized family service plan; service coordination to ensure that the individual and his or her family receive needed services which may include but are not limited to physical therapy, occupational therapy, audiology, health/medical services, nursing services, nutrition services, psychological services including specialized play groups or therapy sessions, counseling, speech and language assistance, special instructional services, transportation, and parenting skills development; and ongoing evaluation of the child's progress and his or her changing enrichment needs. These services are provided in a family centered practice model where families participate with service providers to learn skills and strategies to support their children's development. All services are provided at no cost.
