Early Intervention is based on the belief that children learn best…
- While engaged in day-to-day activities,
- In places familiar to them, and
- Around people they know and love.
For that reason, providing supports and services to caregivers is more important than providing services directly to children. It is the learning that happens between visits that makes the difference! By partnering with families, Early Intervention staff provide the tools and support needed to help children be successful.
Early Intervention staff partner with parents to create an “Individualized Family Service Plan” (IFSP) that’s specific to the needs of the child and family.
The BECEP Early Intervention program also supports a unique parent mentoring program. The goal of this program is to assist families of children, who have severe medical needs, to navigate complex systems involving insurance, health care services, and equipment/supplies.
