Early intervention is a system of services that help babies and toddlers with developmental delays and/or disabilities. Early Intervention focuses on helping eligible babies/toddlers and their families learn basic and brand-new skills that typically develop during the critical first five years of life. Easterseals South Carolina offers Early Intervention services to children and their families statewide through our Early Intervention Specialists.
The Easterseals Early Intervention Specialist offers individualized services that:
• Teach and guide parents toward necessary supports and services to meet their specific child and family needs
• Help parents learn about their child's individual developmental strengths and needs in order to maximize opportunities to participate in their home and community activities
• Provide parents with family-centered, routines- based activities that will enhance their child's overall developmental progress and future outcomes
Easter Seals also provides Service Coordination activities that assist families in accessing resources and agencies that can provide support in helping a family reach their goals.
