The Franklin County Board of Developmental Disabilities established the Bridge Program in September, 2008. This program was designed to serve Part C eligible families who requested Center Based services while waiting for a classroom placement. The Bridge Family Coach Program was established in Fall 2011. This program provides ongoing early intervention services.
Families are provided developmental activities, materials, and strategies to support their child’s needs. Linkage to additional resources may be provided. Help Me Grow service coordinators may attend the meeting and all services align with the child’s and family’s Individual Family Service Plan.
