Early Intervention, Early Care and Education

Building a brighter future for children of all abilities

Early identification and treatment of disabilities and delays is crucial to help infants and children achieve their potential. At the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center, a variety of Early Intervention services build the foundation for a brighter future for youngsters identified with (or at risk for) disabilities. For more details on the Early Intervention services listed below, contact the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center.

First Steps

Physical, occupational, speech-language, and developmental therapies are among the services provided in the child's natural environment at home or in preschool.
