Our Early Intervention program (EI) offers evaluations and a full range of programs and services for infants and toddlers with developmental delays and support services for families.
Early Intervention (EI), the Committee on Preschool Special Education (CPSE) and the Committee on Special Education (CSE) services are for children who have or are suspected of having a developmental delay or disability and are eligible based on the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) or New York State Education Department (NYSED) guidelines. For EI, referrals are made by Nassau County Department of Health/Suffolk County Department of Health (NCDOH/SCDOH) depending on your residency. Local school districts for CPSE and CSE must refer children for evaluations.
Types of services, frequency, duration, location, and provider are determined by the municipality for EI and the school district for CPSE and CSE. Families have no out-of-pocket expenses but are responsible for fees/costs associated with child care. All teachers and therapists are licensed and/or certified according to NYSDOH and NYSED regulations.
