  • Delaware’s Early Intervention System for Infants, and Toddlers with Disabilities and Their Families

    What is Early Intervention?

    Early intervention is a system of services that helps babies and toddlers with developmental delays or disabilities. Early intervention focuses on helping eligible babies and toddlers learn the basic and brand-new skills that typically develop during the first three years of life, such as:

    • physical (reaching, rolling, crawling, and walking);
    • cognitive (thinking, learning, solving problems);
    • communication (talking, listening, understanding);
    • social/emotional (playing, feeling secure and happy); and
    • self-help (eating, dressing)

    Examples of early intervention services

    If an infant or toddler has a disability or a developmental delay in one or more of these developmental areas, that child will likely be eligible for early intervention services. Those services will be tailored to meet the child’s individual needs and may include:

    • Assistive technology (devices a child might need)
    • Audiology or hearing services
    • Speech and language services
    • Counseling and training for a family
    • Medical services
    • Nursing services
    • Nutrition services
    • Occupational therapy
    • Physical therapy
    • Psychological services

DISCIPLINE & STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

  • Can my child with a disability be suspended?

    Many parents are surprised to learn their child with a disability can be suspended for violations to the code of conduct.  However, there are certain steps that must be taken to ensure a student with a disability is not continuously suspended for behaviors which may be related to his/her disability or a result of their IEP not being implemented properly.  This fact sheet gives an overview of the disciplinary process when a student with a disability has been suspended, including information about manifestation determination meetings.
