IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR FAMILIES REGARDING THE EARLY INTERVENTION PROGRAM
The Early Intervention Program is a public program funded by New York State and county governments. All services provided under the Early Intervention Program are provided at no out-of-pocket cost to parents, but health insurance may be accessed for reimbursement for early intervention services provided to eligible children and their families. Eligibility for the Early Intervention Program can be determined only by State-approved evaluators under contract with the municipality. If a child is found eligible for the Early Intervention Program, all needed early intervention services are identified in collaboration with the parent and must be authorized by the municipality. The municipality will arrange for service providers, considering the individual needs of the child and family, to deliver services authorized by the municipality. When Early Intervention services are delivered in child care settings or community locations that require a fee, the parent is responsible for paying any associated costs with such access to child care or community locations.
Accelerated Childhood Education is committed to early identification of problems in development of children from birth to 3 years of age, and quality care that will maximize a child’s full potential. ACE will provide quality in-home services appropriate to the needs of both the child and family by providing experienced professionals with the necessary expertise at no cost to the family, (eligibility is based on New York City, Nassau County and New York State Early Intervention criteria).
Our mission is to provide the best early learning environment, individualized for the family in order to develop a child’s potential to the fullest, and help him/her make the most important advances at the time when the window of opportunity for learning and growth is greatest.
