One in four children under the age of 5 in the United States is at moderate or high risk of developmental delay. The NYC Early Intervention Program evaluates children from birth to age 3 who have suspected or confirmed developmental delays or disabilities. The program works with families to set meaningful goals for their child and create a plan to help them meet those goals.
The earlier in life a child with a delay or disability starts our program, the sooner they can develop the skills they need. Providers play an important role in observing development and can help young children and their families connect to the NYC Early Intervention Program.
