What Is Early Intervention?

Although infants and toddlers learn and grow at their own pace, early childhood development often follows predictable patterns. Skills such as taking a first step, smiling for the first time, and waving “bye-bye” are called developmental milestones. Children reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, act, and move (crawling, walking, etc.)

For a number of reasons, many young children need a little extra help to reach certain developmental milestones. And since infants and toddlers grow and learn so quickly, it's important to get that extra help as early as possible if you or your child's doctor have any concerns about your child's development.

What is The Infant & Toddler Connection of Virginia? 

The Infant & Toddler Connection of Virginia provides supports and services for infants and toddlers and their families so that families can help their children learn during everyday activities and routines. These supports and services are available for all eligible children and their families regardless of the family's ability to pay. 

Early identification and intervention can make a difference!
