Early Intervention Program
Parents often have questions about how their children are growing and learning. All children are different and grow in different ways. But sometimes, children and their parents may need some support.
The Early Intervention Program is designed for children from birth to three years of age. Any parents or guardians who have concerns about their children’s development may contact the Lexington Hearing and Speech Center, Inc. directly.
Lexington Hearing and Speech Center, Inc.’s Early Intervention Program provides:
- Evaluations of hearing, communication/speech & language, physical therapy, and cognitive development
- Individual Communication/Speech and Language Therapy, Special Instruction Services and Physical Therapy Services
In addition, the Lexington Hearing and Speech Center, Inc. also offers these programs for children from birth to age three:
Ready-to-Learn Parent Infant/Toddler Program (for infants with hearing loss and their families)
- Family-centered educational program
- Parent Education
- Child Development
Early Intervention is a state-wide and city-wide program providing needed services to children with developmental delays.
Early Intervention related services are provided at no cost to the family.
Any child under age three with a suspected developmental delay is eligible.
Parents/guardians may contact Lexington Hearing and Speech Center, Inc. directly.
The earlier services are provided, the better. Children are already growing and learning when they are born. With the many resources and technologies now available, it is never too early to evaluate your child’s development.
The Early Intervention Program is funded and regulated by the New York State Department of Health and by the New York City Department of Mental Health, Mental Retardation and Alcoholism Services.
