The Montgomery County Board of Developmental Disabilities' Early Intervention Program provides families and caregivers individualized instruction, specific techniques, and appropriate resources that can be used in everyday interactions and routines with their children to further their child’s development. 

Services are based upon your family’s outcomes written on the Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP). All families have access to a full transdisciplinary team that consists of Developmental Specialists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, and Speech and Language Pathologists. One of these team members is identified as a family’s Primary Service Provider to lead the intervention, and who also incorporates strategies suggested by other team members to promote optimal progress.  This evidence-based approach recognizes the families as a very important team member as well.

MCBDDS Early Intervention services are provided in the natural settings of infants and toddlers, including but not limited to their homes, child care centers and community settings.

For eligible children ages 0 - 2, the Early Intervention program provides:

  • Integrated transdisciplinary approach to Early Intervention
  • Individualized family education training and support
  • Ongoing developmental assessment to adjust programming based upon the changing strengths and needs of your child

Services methods available include in person and virtual.
