Early Intervention

Early Intervention

Overview:

The Early Intervention Program serves children birth to three years of age who have been diagnosed with developmental delays or disabilities, and their families. If the child is eligible, highly trained Fairway staff assists the parents in designing home services to meet the needs of the child and family. Since parents, family and caregivers are the first and most important teachers in a child’s life, they are actively involved in learning new techniques to assist their child. The staff, child, family and friends join forces and create a team.
