Early Childhood Resources

Early Intervention

In the state of Massachusetts, Early Intervention services are covered through insurance and state funds. There is no cost to families for an evaluation or home visits within this program. If you have any concerns about your child’s development in any area, they can do an evaluation at your home and give you a picture of your child’s development in all areas as compared with their chronological age. If you have concerns as parent or a grandparent, it is a good idea to follow up with a evaluation. There is no harm or cost, and services at this young age make a huge difference in the trajectory of development!

To find your local provider, go to this Early Intervention Programs Listing through Mass Family Ties and select your town. It will direct you to the provider for your area.
