Research has shown that by addressing delays early on, especially between birth and age three, we can more effectively impact a child's development, even into adulthood. Early On® Michigan offers free early intervention services for infants and toddlers, birth to three years of age, with developmental delay(s) and/or disabilities, and their families.
Children learn best from their parents and caregivers in everyday activities like diapering, bathing, eating meals, dressing, shopping, and playing with siblings. You know your child best, so you and your Early On® provider will be working closely together during each home visit to figure out learning opportunities in your daily activities. Our focus is to support you in helping your child learn and participate in the things you do and the places you go. You will be provided guidance and support on how to use everyday activities to promote learning so that your child is receiving the best quality intervention.
Our Primary Service Provider brochure defines the delivery of early intervention services.

Early On® services include:
Early On® is a family-centered system, with emphasis on family strengths and abilities, which requires the development of an individualized family service plan (IFSP) specific to each child and family. The IFSP is based on the priorities of the family and the results of the family interview and multidisciplinary evaluation. To the maximum extent appropriate, early intervention will occur in natural environments, including the home and community settings.
