A1 Fairway School – Early Intervention
The Early Intervention Program serves children birth to three years of age who have been diagnosed with developmental delays or disabilities and their families. Help Me Grow staff contact Fairway to set up a date and time for an evaluation. If the child is eligible, highly trained Fairway staff assists the parents in designing home or center based services to meet the needs of the child and family. Since parents, family and caregivers are the first and most important teachers in a child’s life, they are actively involved in learning new techniques to assist their child. The staff, child, family and friends join forces and create a team.
Services are confidential, available to families at no cost and are tailored to meet the family’s needs as identified in the Individual Family Service Plan. On-going support may include:
- Development Screenings and Updates
