Early Intervention

The earlier the better: The Early Intervention Program supports families with children ages birth to three who have disabilities or developmental delays. After a child is evaluated and found eligible for the Program, a team of professionals works with the family to create a service plan that meets their needs. The program is at no cost to families and is available to all New York families regardless of race, ethnicity, income or immigration status.

Interested in working for the Early Intervention Program at the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene? Type “Early Intervention” in the Search for Open NYC Jobs bar on the Public Service Careers with NYC Page.

You can learn more about City facilities, services, and programs for children with disabilities or developmental delays by attending a public meeting of the advisory Local Early Intervention Coordinating Council.
