Aveanna’s Developmental Services offers intensive early intervention (EI) services for children from birth to age five. We focus on communication using ABA and Verbal Behavior principles, preschool and learning readiness, and reduction of problematic behaviors. We provide families a cohesive system of in-home or pre-school education and behavior management to maximize basic learner skills and facilitate progress.
Our Early Intervention Program follows state and federal regulations for services to eligible children and their families. The process begins with a referral to the Local Lead Agency, which schedules an eligibility evaluation for entrance into the program within 45 calendar days of referral. If eligible, the team, including the child’s family, develops an Individualized Family Service Plan, which specifies child and family outcomes and service provisions. This tailored plan of ongoing treatment sessions helps ensure that each child reaches his or her maximum potential.
All therapy sessions occur in the child’s natural environments, which is a critical component in his or her future success.
The first three years of life are crucial — and more so for a child with physical, sensory, or cognitive/communication developmental disabilities. It is imperative that these children receive the intervention they need to progress through developmental milestones and reach their fullest potential physically, emotionally, cognitively, and socially. Our mission is to provide families of these children with the strategies and skills necessary to maximize their child’s development. At Aveanna, we believe all things are possible!
