Help Me Grow Early Intervention
Do you have a concern about your child’s development?
- HMG Early Intervention service needs are determined by a multidisciplinary team who evaluates and/or assesses the child’s developmental needs.
- The team is led by a Service Coordinator who will work to assist and enable a child with a delay or disability and the child’s family to receive services and rights as aﬀorded under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.
- Children and their families will transition when they complete needed services or when the child turns age three, with supports to move on to the next phase of growth & development.
