Early Intervention


The Early Intervention Program (EIP) is a public program for children under the age of three who are either suspected of having or at risk for developmental delays or disabilities. Potentially eligible children must be referred to the county program to receive EIP services. Contact the Growing up Healthy Hotline at 1-800-522-5006 for a program in your county. EIP is funded by New York State and county governments. All EIP services are provided at no cost to parents. Health insurance may be used for approved services. A child's eligibility for the program can be determined only by state-approved evaluators under contract, and all services must be authorized by the county.


To refer your child for EI services, contact the Growing up Healthy Hotline at 1-800-522-5006. For information on the services that Beginnings can provide, please call (518)-233-0544 or email.
