Birth to Three Program


Our Birth to Three program offers early intervention services to children up to three years of age who may be at-risk for developmental delays due to:

  • Prematurity
  • Substance Exposure
  • Social/Emotional Issues
  • Environmental Issues
  • Any parent having a concern about their child’s development

We also provide early intervention services to children who have been identified with a developmental delay. Early intervention promotes age-appropriate growth and development and supports families during the critical early years.

All Services are Free!

Through a generous allocation from United Way and financial support from people in the community who care, we continue to offer top quality services free to families who need us. If you or someone you love needs help ensuring that a child is on track developmentally, give us a call at 863-683-6504. The sooner you start, the better the results.
