Early On is a system designed to coordinate early intervention and other services for families who have children (ages 0 – 36 months) experiencing developmental delays or who have disabilities or special needs.
If you suspect your child has a developmental delay or an associated medical condition or disability, please contact Deana Strudwick, Director of Early Childhood Services.
What is Early On?
Early On is a network of services for children who are developmentally delayed, or at risk of developing delays because of an established condition, or who have a disability.
Early On services children from birth to 36 months of age. There are no income restrictions for eligibility.
Early On’s extensive services include in-home evaluations, referring families for specialized care, and acting as a service coordinator.
Early On Service Coordinator assists families in locating financial resources, if necessary. (There is no charge to families for the in-home evaluation, Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP) development or service coordination.)
Early On is just a phone call away. If you have concerns about a young child’s development, take the first step by contacting Deana Strudwick, Early Childhood Supervisor (within St. Joseph County) or 1-800-EARLYON.
