About Early Intervention Program

The Early Intervention Program (EIP) is a public program for infants and toddlers with special needs. Children with diagnosed conditions that lead to developmental delays are eligible for the EIP. Children with no diagnosis who have delays in development may be eligible for the EIP if their delays are serious enough.

If you have concerns about your child's development, you can call NYC EIP at 311 to refer your child. If you wish, Amerimed can help you make the referral. Eligibility for the EIP can be determined only by NYS DOH approved evaluators under contract with the municipality. If your child is found to be eligible for services by someone approved to perform the evaluation, you, NYC staff, and other team members will make a plan to help your child- and your family.

Early intervention services in your plan and authorized by the county are provided at no cost to you. NYC will arrange for the services to be provided and will choose the provider based on the needs of your child and family. Your child's health insurance may be used to cover some of the costs. All other costs for EIP services are paid for by your county and New York State.

Early intervention services are provided where its best for the child- in places such as your home, daycare, or other community settings. The EIP covers the cost of early intervention services only. The EIP does not pay for daycare or other fees charged by community settings.
