Early On

Overview

 

Early On is a statewide Comprehensive early intervention system that provides a range of family services and supports to help infants and toddlers from birth to 36 months who have developmental delays or established conditions which may lead to delays. Research has shown that by addressing delays early on, especially between birth and age 3, we can more effectively impact a child's development, even into adulthood. 

The developmental needs of infants and toddlers are addressed through the collaborative efforts of several agencies in the community.  One of the purposes of Early On is to help families trying to find out about services for which they may be eligible.

In Macomb County, the Intermediate School District oversees Early On, including accepting referrals. Referrals to Early On come from a variety of Sources including, hospitals, doctors, parents and community agencies.
