Connecticut Early Intervention Services

Early Intervention
The State’s Birth to Three System is funded by a combination of federal and state dollars, private insurance and family fees (based on gross income). Services provided by TheraCare include but are not limited to evaluation and assessment, service coordination and all other required services under Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act such as family training and home visits by a variety of therapists and educators, as well as applying various methodologies to meet the needs of our autism population.
Our skilled professionals work in partnership with each family, and their primary health care providers, to create an environment for enhancing their ability to meet their child’s individual needs.
TheraCare employs professionals with expertise in various teaching methods for children with developmental disabilities and children with Autism Spectrum Disorders such as Applied Behavior Analysis/including Verbal behavior (ABA), the use of Discrete Trial Teaching (DTT) methods, Relationship-based approach (DIR) or a combination of one or more methods. The program is supervised by Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA).
TheraCare’s teachers and clinicians receive intensive and ongoing training by our full-time supervisory staff and full-time administrators support not only our program but also the families we serve. All children are seen in their natural environment.

The Early Intervention Program (EIP) is a public program funded by New York State and county governments for children under the age of three who are either suspected of having or at risk for developmental delays or disabilities. Potentially eligible children must be referred to the county program to receive EIP services: New York City - 311 Westchester County - 914-813-5094 All EIP services are provided at no cost to parents. Health Insurance may be used for approved services. A child’s eligibility for the program can be determined only by state-approved evaluators under contract and all services must be authorized by the county. If a child is found eligible for the EIP, all needed early intervention services are identified in collaboration with the parent and must be authorized by the municipality. The municipality will arrange for service providers, considering the individual needs of the child and family, to deliver services authorized by the municipality. When early intervention services are delivered in child care settings or community locations that require a fee, the parent is responsible for paying any associated costs with such access to child care or community locations. TheraCare is approved by New York State and has a contract with New York City, Westchester, Nassau and Suffolk Counties to provide early intervention services.
