The Early Intervention Program (EIP) is a public program for infants and toddlers with special needs.
Through the EIP a multidisciplinary evaluation is offered at no out-of-pocket expense to families who have concerns about any aspect of their child's development. Eligibility for the EIP can only be determined by State approved evaluators under contract with the municipality.
If you have concerns about your child’s development you can call the county in which you reside to refer your child. To access the Early Intervention Program for Nassau County you can call (516) 227-8661. To access the Early Intervention Program for Suffolk County you can call (631) 853-2318.
Our early intervention coordinators are also available to assist you with the process.
