The Early Intervention Program (EIP) is a public program for infants and toddlers with special needs.

Through the Early Intervention Program (EIP) a multidisciplinary evaluation is offered at no out-of-pocket expense to families who have concerns about any aspect of their child's development. Eligibility for the EIP can only be determined by State approved evaluators under contract with the municipality.

If you have concerns about your child’s development you can call the county in which you reside to refer your child. To access the Early Intervention Program for Nassau County you can call (516) 227-8661. To access the Early Intervention Program for Suffolk County you can call (631) 853-2318.

Our early intervention coordinators are also available to assist you with the process. You can call (631) 473-4284 ext  114, to connect with a coordinator.

What is Typical Development?

Typical Development describes the physical, mental & social development of a child who is acquiring skills according to the expected time frame. A child who is developing in a healthy way pays attention to the voices, faces & actions of others, showing & sharing pleasure during interactions, and engaging in verbal and nonverbal back-and-forth communication.

What are Developmental Milestones?

Developmental milestones are skills gained by a developing child, which should be achieved by a given age. Failure to achieve a particular milestone by a given age may be indicative of developmental delay.
