Parents know their children better than anyone. The first three years are very important in a child’s life. If a parent, family member, caregiver, or professional has a concern about a child’s development, it is best to identify the concern as soon as possible. Families whose infants or toddlers have developmental delay or disabilities, or are at risk for developmental delay or disabilities may qualify for developmental monitoring or early intervention services. Regional center staff can evaluate and assess an infant or toddler to determine eligibility for:
Prevention Resource and Referral Services
The single point of entry to both programs is the regional center in your local area. All infants and toddlers potentially eligible for a regional center program will be evaluated by the regional center to determine eligibility for services.
