For over 50 years, Easterseals Central and Southeast Ohio has been providing early childhood education programs meant to promote skill development for children with developmental disabilities and delays.
Significant research has shown the earlier intervention occurs in a child’s life, the more success that child will experience. By helping children with their cognitive, physical, emotional and social skills, early childhood education programs have demonstrated the ability to make positive impacts on the lives of children and families.
Easterseals is a home-based early intervention program with access to group-oriented, facility-based curricula for children 12-36 months of age. Our Early Intervention program focuses on a child's needs early on in their development at their individual level of ability, giving them the head start they need to keep up with their peers. An individualized plan is developed for each child and their family, outlining goals to be focused on with their team.
· Educational and therapeutic services
· Daily use of a fully accessible play yard and/or gross motor room
· Individual family service plans
· Transportation to those who could otherwise not attend
· In-home visits throughout the school year
· Transition to a preschool setting
Classroom size is limited to eight children with one certified teacher and teacher’s assistant per classroom. Students also work with trained physical, occupational and speech therapists.
