Early Intervention Services

Early intervention focuses on helping eligible families with infants and toddlers learn the basic and brand-new skills that typically develop during the first three years of life.  

Early On Program

If you have a concern about your baby's health or development, Early On services is an effective way to prevent or reduce problems for children at a later age. Specializing in the evaluation and treatment of children that are not developing at the same rate as other children, Early On assists with physical, mental, social, or emotional development. Early On is offered by the Michigan Department of Education. Early On is mandated by Part C of the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

For more information regarding Early On, call 1.800.327.5966 (voice or TDD) or Eaton Early On at 517.541.8937.
