You may have heard about the Early Childhood Intervention Services (ECI), especially if you are a parent, but most lack the understanding of its need. So, here in this blog, we’ll give you detailed information about the ECI service.
ECI services and programs are designed to support all the young ones who have been classified to have developmental delays or disabilities. These services help those who are at risk in the most intensive period of their life. The early intervention services are implemented under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

Children can learn well in everyday situations with familiar people. And, ECI is all about supporting and encouraging everyday learning.
