Children served are developmentally delayed or at risk for delay.
Referrals are received from physicians, hospitals, local school districts, and parents.
Anyone may refer a child for assessment by an inter-disciplinary team.
Individual family plans are developed by a Child Development Specialist, parent, speech/language pathologist, physical therapist, nurse, and social worker, based on the complete assessment of the child and family needs.
The center-based Parent-Infant Education Program, licensed by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services enables certified staff to interact with the children in a purposeful, healthful, and appropriate manner.
Student programs are based on the following areas of training: communication skills, cognitive skills, motor skills, social skills, and self-help skills.
Referrals to other community services for any additional child/family need are coordinated through the Parent-Infant Education Program; including transition planning from early intervention services into local education programs at age three.
