An evaluator will meet with the child and family to conduct the evaluation in a setting familiar to the child. To qualify for Early Intervention, a child must show a 25% delay in one area of development:
Physical development including vision and hearing
Self-Help or Adaptive development
Social or Emotional development
Alternatively, the child may have a known physical or mental condition likely to result in a developmental delay. Services and supports are provided in the child's natural environment.
