Early Intervention

Early Intervention - Riverside Community Care

Our Early Intervention services supports families and their children, from birth to age three, with a broad range of needs. Typical issues that are addressed on a daily basis include an infant who isn’t gaining weight, a toddler with speech delays, or a young child having trouble walking. Our program offers therapeutic, educational and family support services for infants and toddlers that are delayed, disabled, or at-risk. These services include screening and assessment, home visits, group and individual center based therapies, toddler groups, parent education, and support groups.

Our Early Intervention Partnerships Program (EIPP) includes a Maternal Child Health Nurse, a Social Worker and a Community Health Worker all who provide support during pregnancy.  Services are tailored to the family’s needs and can include prenatal education, labor and delivery preparation, newborn care, breastfeeding preparation and support, brief mental health counseling, sibling and family adjustment, and support with addiction treatment, domestic violence and smoking cessation.  A family can stay in EIPP until the baby is 1 year old and our team will conduct developmental screenings every 2 months.

We are pleased to share comments from the people we serve:

"You helped me through a very difficult time and kept me safe. You made me feel very welcome in your home and never once made me feel like I was a bother. I couldn’t have gotten through this time without all of your help."
