A child may receive any one or more of these professionals working with them and their family.

A family may also receive additional services outside of the Early Intervention program. Our role is to ensure that a child and family receive any services that will help to support them.
There is no cost to families for Early Intervention services. Services are covered through your child’s medical insurance or through the RI Department of Human Services, which is the state agency that oversees the Early Intervention program.
