Servicing Children From Birth to 3 Years Old
O.W.L. Academy Early Intervention Program
An Early Intervention social worker can provide emotional support for parents. A social worker is a person to talk to; someone who will listen and give parents an opportunity to talk about their feelings, challenges and life experiences. Supports can include emotional support, identifying and coordinating community resources, parent education, counseling and crisis intervention.
We work to make a difference in a child's life everyday.
Independent Initial Eligibility Evaluations
Targeted evaluation teams comprised of highly trained evaluators will determine the child's developmental levels that may qualify them for state-funded Early Intervention Program services and supports.
A Early Intervention Special Instructor (SI) is a teacher who specializes in supporting and understanding the social, emotional and cognitive development of young children. The goal of this therapist is to increase a young child’s learning opportunities to positively impact his growth.
The Early Intervention Service Coordinators help the families of children with developmental delay navigate all aspects of the Early Intervention system by: Coordinating all services available to children across agencies; Providing information on available services, resources and options; Assisting in the development of Individualized Family Service Plans (IFSP)
Speech-language pathologists (SLP) have a central role in providing services and supports for families and their infants or toddlers with disabilities as members of the early intervention team. SLPs address delays and disabilities in communication, language, speech, emergent literacy, and feeding/swallowing.
Physical therapists use interventions to help children move, reduce pain, restore function, prevent disability, and promote wellness and participation in life. Physical therapists help children improve or restore mobility and prevent or manage health conditions.
Occupational therapy practitioners support and promote the development and engagement of infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, and their families or other caregivers, in everyday routines. These routines include play, rest and sleep, activities of daily living, education, and social participation.
Individual home based therapy is provided in your home in the child's most natural environment. Supports are provided to assist the child and family in reaching their full potential. Community based services will be offered through O.W.L. Academy in the near future.
