Early Intervention Resources
This is a brief list of resources related to early intervention. Some will apply more to EI professionals, and others will have information for parents/caregivers. Please remember if you have concerns about your child’s speech, language, or social development you should always discuss these with your child’s physician.
EI Excellence: A great resource for professionals, but also has good information about early intervention programs for parents too!
Early Childhood Technical Assistance Center: This site is more for parents. It has a link to each state’s infant-toddler program (ITP). You’ll be able to link to your state’s infant-toddler program and use that page to find information about the Childhood Developmental Services Agency (CDSA) in your area.
Family Support Network of North Carolina: This site is directed at families of children with special needs but has some resources for EI professionals as well.
Dolly Partin’s Imagination Library: If you have a child age birth-5 this is worth looking into! Basically it is a FREE book program! If you live in a qualifying zip code, Imagination Library will send your child one book each month until they are 5 years old. You get to keep the books and each book is based on your child’s age bracket. If you have multiple children, you get multiple books! I am not affiliated with Imagination Library in any way. We Signed Van up and love it, so I just recommend it every chance I get! They deliver books to communities in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia.
