Early Intervention (EI)
Early Intervention (EI) Services are provided by Hamilton County DD Services for children under the age of three. To see if your child is eligible call (513) 281-4769.
Once your child is determined eligible for services, an Early Intervention Team will support you and your family. The team includes a Service Coordinator, Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Speech Therapist, Developmental Specialist and Behavior Specialist.
One member of the team will be assigned as a Primary Service Provider (PSP). This professional will visit you and your child regularly at home or other community settings. At each visit, your PSP will help to address your questions and priorities related to your child's development. Together you will find ways to support your child during everyday activities. The PSP will consult other team members as needed, and they may join the PSP on visits with you.
The Service Coordinator on your child's team guides you through services. Your Service Coordinator learns about your family, daily activities, hopes and priorities for your child. They also arrange evaluations, assessments, services and meetings.
