Find out how to refer a child to the Maryland Infants and Toddlers Program and learn what to expect after a referral has been submitted.

Early intervention services are designed to suport each family's capacity to enhance their child's potential at every stage of growth and development.

While all children grow and develop at their own rate, some infants and toddlers experience delays in their development, exhibit atypical behaviors, or have been diagnosed with a special health condition that is likely to lead to non-typical development.  The earlier any potential delays and disabilities are identified and early intervention services begin, the better chance a young child has of achieving his or her best potential. 

The overall goals of early intervention are: 
To enable young children to be active and successful participants during their early childhood years and in the future in a variety of settings: in their homes, in child care or preschool programs, and in their communities; and

To enable families to provide care for their children and have the resources they need to participate in their own desired family and community activities.
