Who We Are
A Brief Overview of Early Intervention Colorado
Colorado’s Early Intervention program provides supports and services to children with developmental delays or disabilities and their families from birth until the child’s third birthday. Early Intervention Colorado can help families learn ways to support and promote their child’s development within their everyday routines and activities.
Research shows that the first three years of a child’s life are the most important time for developing and learning. By providing needed services and supports during this time, families will be able to help their children with special needs develop to their full potential, and may decrease the need for additional help later in life.
The Early Intervention Colorado program bases its foundation of support on seven guiding key principles. They are a way to talk about how services are provided and delivered to the families we support. They include being family-centered, focusing on children’s learning in their natural environment, adult learning and quality teaming.
