Early Intervention

Helping you achieve a better tomorrow for your children.

Are you concerned about your child’s development?

Elmys Special Services offers an Early Intervention Program to support eligible children in meeting their developmental milestones and make progress in life skills. Children ages 0 to three years of age who have disabilities or developmental delays can benefit from this program.

After your child is evaluated and determined eligible for the program, our team of healthcare professionals will work with your family to create a personalized service plan base on their needs.  You will also be appointed with an Early Intervention Official (EIO). who will be an important person in your child’s and family’s early intervention experience.If you have any questions regarding this service, feel free to contact us.
