Early intervention (EI) services are designed to address developmental concerns as early as possible. The services are available for infants and toddlers up to age three who have been determined eligible for EI. Contracted agencies serve as the Early Intervention Program providers (EIPs) and arrange for early intervention practitioners to work with you, the caregiver(s), to address the needs of your child and family.
New Jersey Early intervention SYSTEM(NJEIS)

To be eligible for early intervention services through the NJEIS, a child must meet the criteria in at least one of the following two categories:

From a Mother
“At first I was afraid to ask too many questions. I didn’t want the answers. However nothing has given me more peace of mind than knowing my little one are in such capable and caring hands. The Development Specialist that came to my home was a godsend! She included me in every moment she spent with my daughter and graciously answered all of my questions. Every moment of early intervention has really been a huge help! Thank you!
