RI's Early Intervention Program promotes the growth and development of infants and toddlers who have a developmental disability or delay in one or more areas. Developmental disabilities or delays can affect a child’s speech, physical ability, or social skills. Children referred to the Early Intervention Program receive a comprehensive developmental evaluation to determine if they are eligible.
RIPIN supports RI’s Early Intervention program through the placement
of one or more Parent Consultants in each of the state’s ten EI
programs. A Parent Consultant is someone who has
had a child who has participated in an Early Intervention Program. Their role is to support,
educate and help parents and other caregivers to better navigate the early childhood systems
of care throughout RI.
