The Early Intervention Program has been providing learning experiences for children with developmental delays since 1954 when a group of parents began a preschool program for their children. The program evolved over the years and now has 30 licensed therapists that specialize in working with young children with all levels of delay.

"Chase was definitely not ready to go to preschool this past year, but now, because of the wonderful people and structured classroom, his achievements have made my husband and I rethink the possibility of him being able to go to preschool next year. I no longer look at my son as an infant; he is now a little boy who goes to school. Thank you for helping my baby grow up.”
