Early Childhood Services consists of two programs for very young children. The Infant Intervention program provides early intervention supports and services to young children ages birth to age 3 years who have a developmental delay and their families. In conjunction with the Hopewell/Prince George Healthy Families program, Case Management services are provided through the Healthy Familiesí home visiting program designed to work with families of young children ages birth through 5 years who are at-risk for adverse childhood experiences.
The Infant Intervention Program provides early intervention services to infants and toddlers (birth to age three) with a developmental delay in any skill area to include: physical, emotional, sensory, cognitive, communicative, etc., or if they have a syndrome with a high probability of resulting in a developmental delay (i.e. Down Syndrome, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, etc.). Monitoring is available for children who are not eligible for services but are at a risk of a developmental delay. Services provided include Developmental Screenings and Assessments, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech/Language Pathology, Service Coordination, Parent Education, Family Support, Transition to Public School Programs, and more. The service is provided throughout the District 19 CSB catchment area and is usually provided in the child's natural environment (i.e., home, babysitter, daycare, etc.).
In conjunction with the Hopewell/Prince George Healthy Families program, Targeted Case Management (TCM) services are provided through the Healthy Families home visiting program designed to work with families of young children ages birth through 5 years who are at-risk for adverse childhood experiences. While Healthy Families provides the TCM service, District 19 provides billing and clinical oversight of the staff
