What Can I Expect in Early Intervention?

After referral, your local EI program will assign a service coordinator to your family. Your service coordinator will serve as your primary early intervention contact and will support your family on your journey in EI.

Your service coordinator will put together a team who will determine if your child is eligible for EI. If your child is eligible, the team will work with your family to learn more about your family’s priorities and your child’s needs and work with you to develop a service plan.
