Early Intervention

All families in Early Intervention work with a Support Coordinator through BHDS. If your child is eligible following a developmental evaluation, your Support Coordinator will assist you in writing an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP). The IFSP may include some of the supports listed below based on the specific needs and priorities of your family:

    • Support Coordination
    • Special Instruction
    • Occupational Therapy
    • Speech/Language Therapy
    • Physical Therapy
    • Vision Supports
    • Hearing Supports
    • Others specified by law
