Every child deserves every opportunity to grow and flourish. During the infant and toddler years, young children explore their world as they develop physically, intellectually, and emotionally.  And although children learn and grow at different rates, you may sense that your child has developmental challenges that require professional support. That's where we come in.

metrochildren provides the early intervention services to support and promote your child's development. Our professional team of therapists and educators partners with parents and families to design and implement customized programs that meet each child's special needs.  The earlier the intervention, the greater the long-term effect on the child.

Early intervention services are provided at no cost to the family. We work with you to determine your child's eligibility and to guide you through each step of the referral process.

Early Intervention Program (EIP)
The Early Intervention Program (EIP) is a public program for children under the age of three who are either suspected of having or are at risk for developmental delays or disabilities. Potentially eligible children must be referred to the county program (NYC dial 311) to receive EIP services. EIP is funded by New York State and county governments. All EIP services are provided at no cost to parents. Health insurance may be used for approved services. A child's eligibility for the program can be determined only by state-approved evaluators under contract, and all services must be authorized by the county.
