EARLY INTERVENTION PROGRAM
NEW YORK EARLY INTERVENTION
The Early Intervention Program (EIP) is a public program funded by New York State and county governments for children under the age of three who are either suspected of having or at risk for developmental delays or disabilities. Potentially eligible children must be referred to the county program to receive EIP services. If you have concerns regarding your child’s development, you may directly refer your child to the Early Intervention Program (EIP) by calling 311 if you’re in NYC and ask for early intervention. You can also call the New York State Growing Up Healthy Hotline at 1-800-522-5006 or the local Early Intervention Program where your child resides.
NEW YORK CITY 311
All EIP services are provided at no cost to parents. Health Insurance may be used for approved services. A child’s eligibility for the program can be determined only by state-approved evaluators under contract and all services must be authorized by the county. If a child is found eligible for the EIP, all needed early intervention services are identified in collaboration with the parent and must be authorized by the municipality. The municipality will arrange for service providers, considering the individual needs of the child and family, to deliver services authorized by the municipality. Bright Start PT & PTA, PLLC is approved by New York State and has a contract with New York City to provide early intervention services.
