Early Intervention

 Ohio Early Intervention

Helping children and families wherever they choose to live, play, and spend their day.

The Department of Developmental Disabilities of Ohio, serving as the lead state agency, administers Early Intervention of Ohio.  Early Intervention (EI) is a statewide system that provides coordinated early intervention services to parents of eligible children under the age of three with developmental delays or disabilities. EI is grounded in the philosophy that young children learn best from familiar people in familiar settings. Every family served in EI will have a local EI team that consists of a service coordinator, service providers, and your family. Your team works with you in your home or other places you and your family spend time to develop a coordinated plan called an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP). You and your team will work through your IFSP plan to use your existing supports and resources—and build upon them—to learn to enhance your child’s learning and development.

County Family and Children First Councils are responsible for overseeing the Early Intervention (Part C) services of Help Me Grow. 

Should I Be Concerned About my Child's Development?

All children are unique and develop at their own pace, but there are general milestones that are helpful to understanding your child’s development.

Online Ages and Stages (ASQ) Questionaire

Help Me Grow offers the Ages & Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) Online screening for Ohio families with children under age three to help parents understand how their child is developing and whether there are any concerns. This developmental screening is free, short, and easy to complete.
