Early Intervention / Help Me Grow

help me grow

Early Intervention provides services to families and children birth to age 3, with a developmental delay.  The program, through a collaborative system of services, helps children grow and develop in the best way possible.

Early Intervention services are centered on what families want and expect. We are committed in providing services in a variety of settings. The Early Intervention Specialists work with families to meet their needs in the family home or other community settings. Center-based services are available and families welcome this, as it offers opportunities to meet other families. Community based parent/family support opportunities are available throughout the calendar year.

The Early Intervention program also collaborates with the P.L.A.Y. project, sponsored by the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities. The mission of this project is to assist children up to the age of six, who have Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families. For more information on the P.L.A.Y. project, please contact Pat Lammers, SSA Manager at (419) 523-0115
