General Information

Birth to 3 - Early intervention Program for Infants and Toddlers with Special Needs.

Birth to 3 is Wisconsin's early intervention program for infants and toddlers with developmental delays and disabilities and their families. A federal law, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), provides a framework for a comprehensive program and coordinates developmental, health and social services within the community. The Department of Human Services oversees the Birth to 3 Program in Florence County. The Department of Health and Human Services oversees the the Birth to 3 Program in Wisconsin and has developed rules (DHS 90.12) that specify the program requirements.

The Birth to 3 Program is for children ages birth to 36 months. Eligibility is based on a diagnosed disability or significant delay in one or more areas of development. The team will evaluate the child's ability to: learn (cognitive development); move, see and hear (physical/motor development); communicate and understand other's communication (speech and language development); respond to and relate with others (social and emotional development); and eat, dress and care for daily living needs (adaptive development). A Birth to 3 service coordinator helps the family understand and participate in the evaluation process.

Services and supports a child and family receive are based on individual needs. Eligibility for this program is not affected by the family's income; however, parents may need to contribute to the costs of services.
