A child’s experiences in the first few years after birth establish a foundation that lasts a lifetime. For a child with developmental delays or disabilities, these experiences should include early intervention services which allow them to blossom and grow. Using familiar, comfortable settings such as the home or community day care, Lakemary provides a variety of life-enhancing and educational services to infants and toddlers, age birth to three years, who reside in Miami, Linn, Anderson and parts of Franklin County.
Children participating in the program are served by a caring team of Lakemary professionals who work closely with families in the early intervention process. They provide early childhood education, speech therapy, occupational therapy and community supports in the related services of nutrition, audiology, health & medical care, vision, and physical therapy, as well as assist in the development of other community supports for the family.
If you think you may have a child with special needs, the time to act is right now with the help of the Infant-Toddler Program of Lakemary Center. Your child will be screened, and then given a comprehensive evaluation of development and needs. Upon qualification for our services, a Lakemary Family Service Coordinator will guide a team of professionals through the development of an Individual Family Service Plan designed specifically for your child. All services are delivered to children in their homes or in community day care placements where children can best learn to grow with their families and peers.
