Birth to Three

EASTCONN's Birth to Three program provides evaluations and services by our highly qualified professional staff in the homes of young children, birth to age 3, who have been identified with developmental delays.

Children and their families receive services from specialists including Early Intervention Teachers, Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, as well as other services that may be deemed necessary. Parents and family members are an integral part of the early intervention team, learning the techniques that will help their child's developmental growth and working alongside the home visitors.

Consultation and collaboration with early care and education providers is conducted to ensure consistency and continuity of support.

Through this program, children increase their developmental skills, and families learn how to strengthen their role as the primary educators of their children, meeting IFSP goals and objectives.

Early Childhood Initiatives

Early Childhood Initiatives (ECI), which includes children from birth to grade 3, offers an array of professional, systems development and programs to the region’s families, school districts and communities. Through these services, professional development, coaching and consultation are provided to early care and education programs and public schools in our region, including support for program development, accreditation and professional learning on standards, curriculum, assessment and implementation of instruction. ECI engages families in a two-generation approach through goal setting, parenting workshops and connecting them to adult education services and job training. We administer and provide direct services to children and their families as the grantee for the federally funded Head Start and Early Head Start programs in Windham and Tolland Counties and the subsidized Birth-to-Three Program. Evidence-informed practices to increase outcomes for children are promoted.
