Infant/Toddler Early Intervention is a free service for any family with a child ages birth to three who presents at least a 25% delay in any developmental area such as communication, physical, social-emotional, or adaptive. The first step in determining eligibility is to call the CONNECT Line at 1-800-692-7288 to request a free developmental screening.
If your child is determined eligible, you will then choose an early intervention provider and that is where we come in! Unlike other providers, we are exclusive to Beaver County and we have been helping families for over 50 years.
Tiny Tot Child Development Center will work with you to provide a supportive approach to fostering your child’s growth and development. By participating in a variety of family routines and activities that build upon skills your child already has, teachers and therapists from Tiny Tots will provide opportunities for a collaborative family-centered approach to meeting developmental milestones.
When you participate in the early intervention program with Tiny Tot Child Development Center, our teachers and therapists will support you at home and in other community settings. These are the natural environments where all children learn and grow. Intervention activities will be woven into your normal, everyday life and family routines based on your priorities. We want your child to be excited about learning and exploring the world in ways that are meaningful to him or her and are also important to you.
During regular visits, our teachers and therapists work together with you and other caregivers to identify concerns, answer questions, discuss and demonstrate strategies, and most of all, celebrate your child’s strengths and progress.
Unlike other providers, when there is more than one specialist on your early intervention team, we provide frequent opportunities for them to consult with each other at our central office, located in Rochester. This regular consultation helps assure that we are supporting your child’s overall growth and development while addressing your specific concerns and priorities as a team.
