The Franklin County Help Me Grow-Early Intervention Program is the first contact for families of children 0-3 years old who have disabilities or suspected of having a disability. Children qualify for Federal Part C services following assessment and evaluation provided through the Franklin County Help Me Grow-Early Intervention Program. When determined eligible, families may choose for their services to be provided by the FCBDD Early Childhood Programs. An Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP) will be developed and the Franklin County Early Intervention Service Coordinators will coordinate the development of Family and Child Outcomes and Placement. A Coaching Approach to Early Intervention services is provided by the Franklin County Board of Developmental Disabilities.
Children who are 3-5 years old and who are developing typically may enroll in the FCBDD Peer Program. Enrollment begins in January and there is a monthly fee for this program. Contact the ECE Office at (614)-342-5830 for more information.
