Early Intervention

The Infant-Toddler Developmental Center

The Infant-Toddler Developmental Center, In-Tot, is another program of Reliable Enterprises. In-Tot has been active in Lewis County since 1981 and has served over 500 children and families.

This program serves children with developmental delays ages birth to three and their families.

Free developmental screenings are available in the child’s home, community setting (daycare) or at the program’s center. If further evaluations and subsequent therapy services are needed to enhance the child’s development, funding comes from a variety of sources (school district, county developmental disability dollars, medical coupons and private insurance). A Family Resource Coordinator (FRC) is available to help you find the services your child needs and answer any questions you might have.

We are Lewis County Parent to Parent. Parent to Parent has a book and video lending library, a bi-monthly newsletter, special education advocates, parent mentors, hundreds of resources on parenting, diagnosis and periodical events for the entire family. Please ask.

Infant Toddler Early Intervention Program

Our Infant Toddler Early Intervention Program (In-Tot) has been providing screenings, evaluations and therapy services for children birth to three since 1981. The intervention, education and support services they provide focus on family and the available community resources to help children with developmental delays.

In-Tot provides free screenings to look at how your child is learning and growing in their developmental areas of gross and fine motor, problem solving, communication, social and self help skills. If the screening shows an area of concern an evaluation is then done to further look at your child’s development.

To be eligible, a child must have a delay of 25% or show a 1.5 standard deviation below his or her age in one or more of the developmental areas. A child may also be eligible if he or she has a physical or mental condition, such as Down Syndrome, that is known to cause a delay in development. If your child is eligible for early intervention services, a Family Resource Coordinator (FRC) will help you develop an Individual Family Resource Plan (IFSP) that reflects your family?s concerns, interests and values.

An IFSP is an ongoing process that meets the changing needs of your child and family and is reviewed at least every six months. If your child needs speech, occupational or physical therapy, therapists are available to provide the services your child needs. The program uses school district and county developmental disability dollars plus state or private insurance to pay for these services. Therapy is done in a variety of settings which might include your home, a community setting (daycare), our community playgroup or center.
