At-Risk Tracking
Regardless of eligibility for other Early Intervention services, all Infants and Toddlers are eligible for at-risk tracking if they fall into one of the following categories:
  • Birth weight under 1500 grams (equivalent to 3.31 pounds) 
  • Cared for in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) 
  • Born to a chemically-dependent mother and referred by a physician, health care provider or parent 
  • Abused or neglected, as substantiated by county Children and Youth agency 
  • Confirmed dangerous levels of lead poisoning as set by the Department of Health 
  • *Experiencing homelessness 

Once enrolled in the at-risk tracking program, a Service Coordinator will come to your home at regular intervals to observe your child and administer a developmental screening. If it appears that your child is showing signs of developmental delay, a full Multidisciplinary Developmental Evaluation will be scheduled, with your written consent, to determine eligibility for Early Intervention services.

*A child is considered homeless if he or she is living in one of the following situations:
  • Doubled-up (e.g., sharing the housing of other persons due to economic hardship, loss of housing, or other reasons such as domestic violence 
  • Hotel/Motel 
  • Shelter (includes shelters, transitional housing, and/or awaiting foster care 
  • Unsheltered (cars, parks, campgrounds, temporary trailers including FEMA trailers, substandard housing, or abandoned buildings)
