Early Intervention ColoradoEarly Intervention Colorado

Early Intervention Colorado is a federally mandated program, through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (I.D.E.A.). The program serves children birth to three years of age and their families with documented delay in one or more areas of development or a condition associated with delays in their development. In this federal law, the section that guarantees support and services for children under three years of age is called Part C, and is known in Colorado as Early Intervention Colorado for Infants, Toddlers, and Families.


The purpose of Early Intervention Colorado is to enhance the development of infants and toddlers who have developmental delays and to enhance the families capacity to meet their child's special needs. Early Intervention Colorado provides support and services to these families in a natural environment within the families everyday routine activities and places.


The goal of Early Intervention Colorado is to insure that families have quick access to this coordinated, inter agency, community-based service system through their Early Intervention Colorado local offices and their local partners.
