Early Intervention

Early Intervention is the process in which children receive services through an Early Intervention agency from the ages of three to five and have a delay of at least twenty-five percent. It is the District’s responsibility to determine if children who are age-eligible for Kindergarten in the Fall of any given year will need academic assistance.  It is important to note that the services received through an Early Intervention agency are based on developmental needs, while services provided by the School District are determined by academic needs. The questions that need to be answered are “Will a child need assistance to access the curriculum?” and if so “What type of assistance?”
