From birth to age three children have a lot to learn, but not all children are learning as well as they can. If your child is under age three and has special needs, or you are worried about the way your baby or toddler is developing, your family may qualify for services to support his/her development. An evaluation of your child's development will be used to determine his/her eligibility for early intervention services.
If your child is determined eligible, you, the early intervention specialists, and others important to your child's life will develop an Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP) to support and promote your child's development. Early Intervention services can fit into your family's daily activities and routines. Services may occur in your home, child-care center, or other community setting. Your family will participate as full partners with the early intervention specialists in supporting your child's development.
Birth-to-Three services in Washington State are covered under IDEA Part C (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, a Federal program) and under ITEIP (Infant Toddler Early Intervention Program, a Washington State program). Additional general information about early support for infants and toddlers can be found at Washington State Department of Early Learning.
When we received a personal reference to the Achieve Center, I had no idea it would be so great! There is experience, education, and hard work. My son could not have a better therapist and support for all that it takes to work with him.
I personally have experienced the growth and achievement that my son has done with the caring people at the Achieve Center! Wonderful people, great staff, and the caring touch a parent can count on!
The Achieve Center has made a huge difference in the outcome and success of my son. He looks forward to attending therapy every week and loves to see his therapist. It’s nice to have all his therapy together and they work around our schedule. The Achieve Center is the best therapy in town.
Our professional therapists provide loving, quality care to address a wide range of difficulties and are experienced to help your child reach his or her full potential.
