The Early Intervention program in Illinois is a collection of services for infants, toddlers and their families who have delays in development or who are at risk of developmental delays. The Child and Family Connection program supports and teaches families how to play with their children in ways that will help them learn essential skills. Families are the key to successful early intervention. Families and service providers must work together as a team on behalf of the children. 

Early Intervention services are developmental and are designed to meet an infant's and toddler's developmental needs in any one or more of the following areas: 

  • physical development (movement)
  • cognitive development (learning)
  • communication development (interaction)
  • social or emotional development (behavior)
  • adaptive development (use of existing skills)
