    We partner with South Sound Parent to Parent to screen and evaluate children in all areas of development. Children who qualify for services receive early intervention at no cost to families. Examples of qualifying areas include: 
    • vision
    • hearing
    • cognitive skills
    • expressive social/emotional skills
    • adaptive skills
     
    Early intervention services are designed to meet each child and family's individual needs. We serve families in a variety of ways such as: 
    • home visits
    • parent-toddler group
    • daycare visits
    • consultations
    • collaboration with private therapists and medical professionals in the community
