Infant-Toddler Services

Our Infant-Toddler Services staff have one primary goal in mind: to empower parents of children ages birth to three with developmental concerns. By working directly with the families they serve, the Infant-Toddler team helps parents become early interventionists for their own children, helping them be successful in overcoming the struggles their children face.
