Early Childhood Intervention means finding specific ways to help a child become as functional as possible. The first step of early intervention is evaluation. Once a child is evaluated, he/she can receive the appropriate type of treatment that he/she needs. Sometimes, getting your child help at an early age can enable him/her to reach his/her developmental milestone on target or close to target – to catch up to his/her peers.
In Baltimore, for children ages birth thru three, you can contact the Infants and Toddlers program to begin the evaluation process. Visit the Maryland State Department of Education to find out who to contact depending on which county you live in.
