Early Intervention for Developmental Delays

Are you wondering if your children are progressing appropriately for their age? The State of Colorado has an incredible Early Intervention Program provided to parents - for FREE!!

To determine if your children qualify for Early Intervention, they need to be "assessed" by ChildFind (see below for listing of ChildFind contacts by County). It's from this assessment, they'll determine whether your child need Speech, Occupational, Behavioral, and/or other types of therapy. After the assessment, if you qualify, therapists COME TO YOUR HOME (for FREE)!!! on a frequency basis until they turn three years old. The therapists work with the children, and you as the parent, giving you useful tools and methods for helping your child develop!! Once your child is three, if s/he continues to qualify, s/he would get access to early intervention in preschool. Say hello to FREE preschool!!

The waiting list for appointments can be up to 60-90 days, so get on this quickly!!

What is the right age to have your child assessed?  Well, if you have a concern, you notice that other children your child's age are more advanced. You're unsure.  Just because you don't know to have a concern, doesn't mean ChildFind can't help. So, get the assessment done regardless.

Getting Started - Birth to 3 Years Old
