Birth to Three Early Intervention is a State of Connecticut approved early intervention program providing services for children less than three years of age whose evaluation demonstrates a significant delay in development or a diagnosed medical condition such as Down syndrome, cerebral palsy or autism.
The Family and Children’s Center provides learning experiences for children of all abilities aged birth to twelve and their families. Their mission is to meet the needs of families who are concerned about their child’s social, emotional, and physical development as well as their educational success. The Center provides parent support groups, individual consultation, children social skills groups, and school transition information and support. Trained professionals conduct educational workshops. Family enrichment activities involve music, play, and art. The Family and Children Center is supported solely by grants, workshop fees and donations.
The mission of KIDSTEPS and Early Childhood Interventionservices is to assure that families who have children ages birth to three, with diagnosed disabilities, developmental delays or substantial risk of significant delays receive resources and supports that assist them in maximizing their child's development while respecting the diversity of families and communities. Every child is unique- growing and developing at his or her own rate. Most of the time differences between children of the same age are nothing to worry about. But for one child in 10, the differences can be related to a developmental delay. The sooner these delays are identified, the quicker children may be able to catch up to their peers.
Individuals and families in programs are surveyed forquality and effectiveness. As a nonprofit provider of state mandates services, KIDSTEPS is subject to the regulatory requirements and annual assessments of the Connecticut Department of Developmental Services, Department of Social Services and the Bureau of Rehabilitation Services.
