Basic Steps of the Early Intervention Process

This 5-page handout from CPIR shows the 8 basic steps of early intervention, with brief summaries of each step. You can use this handout when introducing families, professionals, and community members to the state’s early intervention system for infants and toddlers with developmental delays or suspected disabilities. Steps 1 and 2, for example, are when the child is referred to the early intervention system, which then evaluates the child to see if he or she does have a delay or disability and is eligible for services. Moving through the steps thereafter, the process ends with Step 8, when the child exits early intervention upon reaching the 3rd birthday.

This handout was created as part of CPIR’s training curriculum on early intervention, Building the Legacy for Our Youngest Children with Disabilities. CPIR is pleased to update it to 2022 and provide it anew, as an accessible PDF and in Word. Read more about the handout and download it here.
