An Early Intervention Specialist is a certified professional who provides services to children with certain developmental disabilities or delays from infancy to age three. The specialist functions as a member of a professional team that can provide a variety of services to children and their families. The job duties of an Early Intervention Specialist often include interviewing families during home or office visits. During these meetings the specialist can conduct evaluations and assessments to determine the presence of developmental disabilities – based on the results, he or she can provide services and can help coordinate services for the child and family.
The reason I wanted my children to come here was because of the diversity. They have an appreciation for the needs of other children, healthy foods, art, gardening and the structure of the organization and building.

I’m most proud of the children with their innocence, joy, and the comments they make.
