What are Early Intervention Services?
A network of services and supports for the families of children, birth to 3 years old, who have delays or disabilities. If you are concerned about a child's development -- or want information about how to seek services -- our site can answer your questions and help you assess the situation. In First Steps to Early Intervention, you'll learn how the system works and find contact information for our service providers. When your child turns 3, the system can assist with the transition to services provided by your local school district.
are we at Family Link?
We are the New Jersey non-profit agency that administers the early intervention system in Essex, Morris, Sussex, Union and Warren counties. If you need information or assistance, here's a list of who to call for help. One of our jobs is to help resolve conflicts between families and service providers, so we can provide information about dispute resolution. Though much of our funding comes from the state of New Jersey, we need and welcome your support for Family Link.
I all alone in this?
Not at all. Throughout the year, there is a busy schedule of events that bring together the families of children receiving early intervention services; this is also the place to find information of general interest about activities in the area for parents and families with young children. For professionals, an ongoing schedule of trainings and meetings helps us share information
