Early Identification, Intervention Services (EIIS)

Early Identification, Intervention Services (EIIS)

The EIIS program is specifically designed for infants and young children up to nine years of age. Like the SART program, EIIS can cover a wide range of intervention approaches including: physical therapy, occupational therapy, sensory integration, and speech and language development therapy. EIIS is specifically for infants and young children who may display some type of developmental, behavioral concern or who are at risk for disabilities or special needs. The purpose of this program is to identify mild concerns in order to provide early intervention to the child "at risk". EIIS services are provided through a variety of activities, both clinical and non-clinical, to ensure that these children grow to their greatest potential.

Initial Services

Services for EIIS start with the administration of the Ages and Stages Questionnaire 3, and the Ages and Stages Social Emotional (ASQ and the ASQ-SE) are used as an initial screening tool to evaluate the child’s current level of functioning.
