Early Learning and Intervention Program (ELIP)

The Early Learning and Intervention Program (ELIP) provides short-term, gap early intervention services for children ages birth to 5 in Hillsborough County.

Children experiencing delays in development but may not meet the eligibility criteria for Early Steps or Child Find are able to turn to Easterseals to receive early intervention services, parent education, and service coordination.


  • This program is an in-home program with an option of some service occurring in the child’s school setting.
  • Intervention services are based on a referral from Early Steps or Child Find programs. Parents and Caregivers can self-refer directly.

Early Learning and Intervention Program is available only in Hillsborough County.

This program is generously funded by the Children’s Board of Hillsborough County.
