Early Intervention Services
United Cerebral Palsy Association of Hawaiʻi provides Early Intervention Services for children from birth up to three years of age who have developmental delays. Early Intervention is a federally-mandated program that is administered by the State of Hawaiʻi’s Department of Health – Early Intervention Section.
Our staff provides services in each child’s natural environment (e.g., home) with the goal of educating, enhancing, and coaching parents and caregivers to support each child’s development within the context of the child’s daily routines and activities.
Early Intervention Services provides:
Development evaluation of gross motor (sitting, crawling, walking), fine motor (using arms, hands), communication (talking, understanding words), adaptive (eating, dressing), social (relationships with others), and cognitive (learning) skills. This evaluation determines eligibility for services.
Individualized Family Support Plans
Individualized Family Support Plans that identify concerns, priorities, goals, objectives, and needed services. This plan may be updated or changed according to the child’s progress.
Direct services including Occupational Therapy, Speech Language Pathology, Physical Therapy, and Special Education Instruction.
Care Coordination services
Care Coordinators work with families and caregivers to address concerns and priorities, to identify resources, and to coordinate services.
Support services referrals
