Early Intervention is always a free service for families. Early Intervention services are based upon your child’s developmental needs, not your socio-economic standing, and are funded by the state.
In South Carolina, children under the age of three years old can obtain BabyNet eligibility for Early Intervention services. Children ages three through five can obtain DDSN eligibility as a newly eligible child or upon exiting the BabyNet program.
Early Intervention consists of a range of services designed to intervene at the early stages of an infant’s or toddler’s development in order to help the child reach their greatest developmental potential. Research, as well as our own experience, tells us that the first five years of a child’s life are the most critical time of learning; in fact, these early years are your child’s foundation! This is why Early Intervention is so important for a child experiencing developmental delays or with a confirmed diagnosis or disability. We help families identify problems or needs early. We work together to develop a plan of intervention to help your child move forward. Call Promising Futures for assistance in obtaining eligibility for your child under age six.
