early intervention


Our Early Intervention Program helps children from birth to three years of age who exhibit developmental delays, have a diagnosed condition or who are at-risk for developmental delays due to biological, medical or environmental risk factors.  We serve children and families living in Andover, Lawrence, Methuen and North Andover. If you are concerned about your child’s development and growth, please contact us to set up an evaluation.

Services are provided in collaboration with each child’s family.  In addition to the therapeutic services provided to the child, our providers also offer parental support and education. Our services are provided in multiple settings—including the child’s home, child care, at our Andover or Lawrence offices or other community centers. Most services are covered by health insurance, and are always provided to eligible children with no charge to the family.
