Wonder. Learn. Grow.
Like most things, therapies have the best effects when started young. Early Intervention
services are for infants through 3 years of age. If you suspect your child is not developing
at a rate appropriate for his/her age, we can help you with your questions and concerns.
We would be happy to assist you with the referral process. Our therapists provide therapy
using learning strategies and activities to help the child reach age-appropriate milestones.
Parents are encouraged to be involved in all therapy sessions and every effort is made to
accommodate busy family schedules.
At no cost to you, CDG has an agreement with NYS Department of Health to provide Early Intervention services throughout the north country. These services include:
Special Instruction. Some children develop at a slower pace than other children and require additional services, support, and programs that are specialized for their delay. Special Instruction provides children with developmental-based learning activities and interactions to help them reach an age appropriate level.
Speech Therapy. Children have a lot to say. Delays in communication can cause frustration and can prevent a child from expressing their wants and needs. Early Intervention children can experience a variety of communication delays that require speech therapy.
Occupational Therapy. Children are constantly learning and playing in this age group. Delays in fine motor skills can prevent a child from manipulating toys and carrying out activities of daily living. Early Intervention children can experience various delays that require occupational therapy.
Physical Therapy. Children are bundles of energy that love to play, explore, and learn. Sometimes a gross motor or mobility issue can prevent a child from experiencing their environment. Physical therapy promotes restoration that is associated with an injury or disability.
Multidisciplinary evaluations (MDE). An MDE is the first step in determining your child’s need for further support. This evaluation is at no cost to the family. MDEs are conducted by a team of experts in multiple fields. This gives a broader perspective, to ensure the evaluation is thorough. As a parent/caregiver is a child’s first teacher, we ask that you are a part of the evaluation. No one knows your child better than you.
