Family Centered Service Deliverychild - bright beginning early intervention

We strengthen and support the entire family as we meet each challenge together. Parents are important and integral members of their child's Early Intervention team, and we listen carefully and closely to their concerns, questions and preferences. We provide all assessment and intervention in the child's natural, day-to-day environments and with respect for the family's routines and cultural preferences.

We assist families in developing an Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) that addresses their priorities and dreams for their child. Whether the parents need educational or emotional support, we are here to help. It is our goal to enable the parents to gain information and strategies they need to confidently guide their young child's participation in all aspects of the family's life
